This yarn used to be a silk blend sweater. It’s been slow mordanted in alum and then cold soaked for about a week in a vat of yellow aspen leaves (result: sad yellow). Then one of the skeins took a 20 minute dip in an afterbath of iron tea (khaki green). Lastly they both got a quick half-dunk in a bucket of wood ash water (mustard yellow/ brown). #naturaldye #wildcraft #yarn
