2oo g with 900g stinging nettle. [mordant - alum] 2 hrs at 90'C and overnight to cool
200g with 500g Slang Bessie [mordant - alum] 1 hr and 90'C and overnight to cool
then I left 100g in the dye bath and added 1 litre of fermented onion skin water [poo - it stank] But the colour is really pretty.
So now I have 400g of hand dyed yarn and cant wait to dye some more!
The stinging nettle dye bath after 2hrs on the stove. I left it over night to maximise on the green tone, and it definitely helped.
Slang Bessie - indigenous plant that belongs to the same family as the tomato and potato. I have no idea of the colour fastness of this dye bath, time will tell...
