Snow dyeing has been discussed a lot on a couple of the online lists I participate in. I have always thought it looks just like Low Water Immersion Dyeing I usually do.
I was reluctant to do it, but we have had snow on the ground here for over 80 days and the temperatures have been very low.
I needed to dye a bedsheet for backing a bed quilt I am making for my step daughter and her fiance - they are getting married this spring.
So, I took advantage of the opportunity to try the snow dyeing process.
I froze my soda ash soaked cotton overnight. Then, I covered the container with snow and brought it inside, where I poured on dye and left it to sit for 24 hours.
The results - great! But I still say I can get the same effect without the freezing or snow!
