Natural Dyes

Here are my latest dye batches - Honeybush [left] , stinky weed first and exhaust dye bath

100g honebush tea for 200g wool mordant = alum
400g stinkyweed for 100g wool mordant = alum
exhaust bath 100g wool mordant = alum. I also added some vinegar

I think I am now going to focus on other craft until my imported natural dyes arrive. And that should be soon. I cant wait!!!

Watch this space!!!
