ADD ON (8/30/18) : I'm adding on my stash of #2 Round Reed in assorted colors in small quantities. All of my twined kits are woven in either #3 round reed or #2 round reed. #2 RR is the smaller diameter of the two types of reed. If you are wanting to weave detail into your baskets this is your go-to reed. Vibrant colors and smaller reed make for more design element capability.
Now I hate to dye reed and therefore the title "I will never sell boutique dyed reed". I only dye this stuff in the summer since it's labor intensive and I have a small surplus that I'm willing to share until it's gone.
What is a "small surplus"? In some cases 3 pounds of reed and these will not be sold in anything other than 1 pound amounts.
What is "boutique" dyed reed? You know the good stuff. It takes two to three days to accomplish. The dye -dry- and- try again until the beauty of the dye combinations reveals itself. You need hot, dry, weather, and a little wind doesn't hurt either.
What I've got: tie dyed indigo blue in 3/16" FR, 1/2" FR, and 5/8" FR. Fire tie dyed (red and yellow) in 3/16" FR, and the mother of them all. The varigated 3 dyed 3/16" FR in Aurora (blue/green/purple).
Prices are as follows: all tie dyed reed (2-dye combination) $30 per pound. All varigated dyed reed (3-dye combination) $40 per pound.
