Depth of shade. As spinners and dyers, we might refer to depth of shade as we intuitively describe color, or we might use it to describe specific dye measurements. This common but always evocative color-theory idea was the inspiration for this annual color issue of Spin Off.

This color issue is packed with articles and projects about the search for color and making use of simple tools to expand our palette potential! Natural dyer Jane Woodhouse resurfaces Fred Gerber’s investigative approach to natural dyeing and shows how to use it to explore dyes, mordants, and assists in today’s more ecologically friendly dyepots. Even using her typical dyestuffs, she found some surprises! Mary Berry uses acid dyes to dig into saturation, value, and the difference between the two—a must read if you want to develop more control over color.
