Here is the gorgeous yellow we got from the Osage orange dye bath on my wool.
I had a chance to help grind some cochineal bugs into a powder and then extract the beautiful red color from it. Here are my dyed samples on wool.
We did a madder dye bath and got this nice strong orange color from it.
I explored some over dyeing at the end of the day and discovered that one two minute dip in the indigo vat made a huge transformation in the colors. I absolutely love them!!!!! This is the beginning of a color study of natural dyed yarns overdyed in indigo. I can't wait to get home and order the supplies needed to create my own indigo vat and get started.
