Natural dyed yarn

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.
