Homeschooling, farm life and our love of earth

Good use for a stinky weed!




We have tons of this on the farm and the smell turns me off, BUT the colour it yields is so pretty that I am willing to suffer in silence. [and I doubt the fish moth will ever attack it!]

The other skein is still on the exhaust bath, but I was so excited that I decided to blog this [still wet] one first! So please come back later to see the other skein!


These natural dyes are done as food for my soul and are not for sale. I have no idea of the colourfastness and will only be checking it in a few weeks time. After I have checked them, I will swap them for other Waldorfish Homeschool bits and bobs, so let me know if you are keen on any of the colours
:-)
