I’ve been experimenting with natural dyes again. It’s fascinating to find useful plants around us that color wool. So far, I’ve dyed with walnut, eucalyptus, lichens and a few varieties of mushrooms. Oh, the current dye pot has Toyon, a bush with little red berries similar to the Pyrocantha that I grew up with. It’s actually the stems and leaves that you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 cut upand cook to create dye . My goal is to knit a hat or mittens in a Fair Isle pattern using natural sheep wool colors and natural dyes. Since we have had a fair amount of rain lately, I have been focusing on mushrooms. I found a lot of information about local California mushrooms, in this on Fibershed’s main site. And of course I’ve used Rebecca Burgess’s, Harvesting Color for general information on different kinds of plants.
