Natural Dye Rainbow!
Natural Dye Class Rainbow Of Samples
I finally got the sample yarn skeins from the natural dyeing class at The Mannings racked, stacked, & packed. I'll submit 2 pictures to my discerning audience because it's all about the lighting! I'm particularly fond of the over-dyed and dip-dyed skeins.
Natural Dye Skeins "Mixed" To Separate Colors
Definitely click on these pictures to see the colors. The Fustic over-dyed with Indigo gave us the green & yellow/gold skein. That deep purplish skein is another favorite. Look closely at the subtle color variation ... Cochineal also over-dyed with Indigo. The bright yellow/orange/pink dip-dyed skeins look great here and also look good after they were "re-skeined" ... the skein gets a different multi-color strand appeal. It makes you want to go out and set up a batch of dye pots, eh?!? I may be doing a natural dye demo later in September ... what to do, what to do? We didn't even get into Sumac or Walnut in this workshop ... :)
