I have been playing around with some natural dyeing. First some white wool yarn.

From Right to left:  madder, madder overdid with marigold, marigold, marigold over dyed with madder, weld, weld with iron, walnut, walnut with iron, logwood, logwood with iron.

I love the effect of adding iron to the dyes.

An eco printed smock following India Flint’s methodology.  It turned out beautifully, IMHO.




A chenille scarf in shades of teal and turquoise with supplementary warp of nylon ribbon.
