It’s been a busy holiday season and one and a half months since my last post.
I finished spinning the kettle dyed wool from my last post about a month ago, but never got around to taking pictures.
So here they are…the results…
Keep in mind this will was originally a light grey colour…so colours may vary on white wool (which I think I’ll try next time).
The mulberry dyed with an alum mordant.
Now unfortunately I got the two blackberry wools a little mixed up, but I’m fairly sure this is the blackberry mordanted with alum.
And this is the blackberry mordanted with cream of tartar.
I think I might have to experiment with blackberry and mulberry dyeing again but try more mordants and not get them mixed up again.
All three skeins of wool were left in indirect sunlight for about one and a half months…accidently… so I can’t give much detail on color fastness unfortunately…
With the holidays over I will probably get back into dyeing and spinning a bit more, so stay tuned for more (hopefully) regular posts.
