natural dyeing workshop {part II}

On my second day at the workshop I worked a shibori technique on a linen table runner and then dipped it in the indigo.
I also dyed some pima cotton, alpaca and cotton yarn swatches in the different yellows we had. The intention was to dip the material in yellow and then in the indigo to make green.

  1. ALL of these are just wonderful to see...I esp. like the golden colors. Your photos are really, really nice Anabel.
    Can't imagine how hot it was outside to do this!
