Vicki is collecting flowers to dye yarn again. The yarn pictures are from the last batch.
Natural dyes on wool
This is the results of my wife’s first round of natural dyes she has a lot more to try including poke berry and dyers polypore. This was marigold and black beans. I love the marigold. She also tried some butternut husks from out back, but she just did a little bit to get an idea of the color. As a side note the yellow hand spun was done on a homemade supported spindle.
Marigolds were from the garden it was a mix 2.2 ounces dry and 3.3 fresh. It produced enough dye to do 3 or skeins.
I just had to post this. My wife dyed some wool with tropical punch Kool aid, and is making some socks.
