As I experiment with natural dyes more, I thought I should share what I have been up to.
I like to use little energy, so the whole process takes rather a long time, which means I don't produce that much! However, here are a few piccies of the end results. As I build up, these things will hit the website with a shop, but all in good time, as this is slow production!
This is merino dyed with madder. I use an Alum mordant, but there are no other modifiers. It is salmony in reality and very pretty.
Here are three cakes being logwood purple (my goodness it is hard to exhaust that dye bath), valonia oak, and lac.
Five colours on the drum carder making a mixed batt of the above three plus madder and goldenrod
The mixed batt off the carder.
