Dyeing with marigolds

All summer long we have been picking the marigold blossoms from our dye garden and drying them. We devoted today to dyeing.

We boiled the flowers, prepared the dyepot and soaked the roving.

Here is the result on some blue-faced leicester mordanted roving. The color is actually deeper and much richer than the picture shows. It really turned out quite lovely.
