Peggy Doney has always been fascinated with color since her first box of crayons. After 20 years of homeschooling, she wondered what to do with all of the left-over chemistry equipment. The answer came after taking a spinning class with a neighbor which led to dye classes. For many years, she has been discovering color recipes using triad, gradient, and monochromatic studies. These studies allow exploration in hue as well as value and support Peggy’s special interest in making accurate recipes that are starting points for matching colors in nature. Peggy’s skill with the dye pot led to a stint as one of the regular dyers for Treenway Silks.
Peggy knows all the dyeing jokes, has flocks of wheels and dye pots, and now uses her big box of crayons as a reference material. She makes her home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with her fiber-enabler husband, Jeff, and two undyed white dogs. You can follow her colorFULL adventures on Instagram and Facebook as The 100th Sheep.
Notes from the PLY team
These dyeing classes are always such a hit. If you're on the fence, take one, you won't be sorry!
