After two plus weeks of soaking in the dye baths, the true colors of my dye experiment were finally revealed!
I was blown away by the gorgeous colors! The cochineal is a stunning magenta, the red onion skins a beautiful burnt orange, the turmeric and orange peel an almost florescent yellow, the red cabbage with vinegar is a pretty lavender, the pomegranate skins, are rich gold and sand colors, the mint gave the yarn a slight green tint, and the red cabbage with baking soda turned the yarn an amazing blueberry color!
I am planning to make a weaving with the mint, pomegranate, and onion skin dyed yarns. Some sort of dip dyed effect. It will be extra satisfying since I started from the ground up with the solar dyeing!
I think it was a great success and I can't wait to start my next batch with , beetroot, walnut powder, avocado, berries, grapes, henna, and strawberry tops. I will will report back with my progress!
