Natural Dyeing at The Spinnery
Today I had another dye class, natural dyeing. Betty picked Goldenrod and Jewelweed for the class to use. We also used some dried Madder Root. First our sampls were mordant with alum (white), copper (green) and iron (brown).
She had the Madder Root soaking in the bath when we got there. We stripped the Goldenrod flowers and put them in a bath. Brought it up to a simmer. And we stripped the flowers and leaves of the Jewelweed and put in a bath to simmer.
