2nd extract, merino wool and silk
2nd extract on silk fibres
3rd and 4th extract on merino and silk, lovely chalk powder grey
and other more or less succesful dyeing
color from bracken, again, I was hoping for a deeper hue as I used only young curly fronds
instead of whole leaves. However, I like all these shades, I think they will look good when put together – with some grey. They are all very natural and make me to appreciate color in a new way. They reange from pale yellow to medium brown but in so many different hues. Also the logwood, from four dyepots and on various fibres, each color is unique: blue grey, lavender grey, muddy grey, pigeon grey, chalk/powder grey, charcoal – or just grey.
I also did a quick dye test steaming lichens which are widespread here and was rewarded by lovely medium peach color.
