Did you know that I dye tights?
The fourth pair is a red-to-black ombre for Laura :)
I can make some for you, too!
I’ll be getting an Etsy store up soon that should make the process easier for all involved, but in the meantime, you can check out this post!
Process shots of a really large piece I’m working on. Started off by discharging the color out of donated t-shirts. Then turned them into a bunch of little pillows. I have over 150 now! Now I’m crocheting over them with wool yarn, then dyeing and felting them.
I still have a ton of work to do but I’m making good progress!

Just send me an email at laurenmichelejordan AT gmail DOT com with the title “Tights” and

The tights are nylon and spandex. I use opaque control top tights, but if you want sheer or non-control top, please specify in your email.
Please remember that these tights are hand dyed so the legs may will not match perfectly and that colors may vary slightly in saturation. However, I can guarantee that your tights will be one-of-a-kind! :)
Feel free to email me if you have any questions!
Gotta admit that at least a tiny part of what draws me to fibers is getting to feel like somewhat of a mad scientist.
Maybe no one else will find this as cool as me but that’s okay too.
Also sorry for the noise, had to have the vent on!
More deconstructed screen printing.
I did some deconstructed screen printing today.
I also started on tight orders! Thanks so much everyone <3
Some of the dye work I did while I was at Arrowmont this past week. :)
