So it is always a great surprise when we make a dyebath from.....for instance.... blossums like these:
(14 oz. total fresh blossoms)
And add 2oz of alum and cream of tartar mordanted wool, and a tablespoon of baking soda in the last 15 min or so to change the pH....
And get a lovely bright shade of ...not yellow... but....green...:
So of course we have to add another 2oz of wool to the dyebath and get a still beautiful but pale yellow:
They do look very pretty together:
Now to see if the green can be duplicated with another dyebath.
May be most likely be yet another surprise.
