it's a good day to dye, pt. 2

Red wine experiments: wool, cotton jersey (I think), and silk with an alum mordant.

I like them. Not sure how well they'd hold up after a wash, but I'm going to pretend that's not a problem.

(And it was bad wine! We were going to throw it out anyway. Really.)


  1. That is really cool how you got the different effects. That Tansy too. It's poke berry season and its popped up all around here. The berries are still green but getting ready to pick. I check on them every morning on my drive to work. But every time before they get ripe the darn city tears em out of the bushes they are growing up out of. Don't they know that is precious dye stuff, Dang it. So I may have to go into the wild to get some, LOL.

    1. Thanks! Man, I'd love to see how pokeberries dye up...post pictures if you get some!
