Indigo Over Marigold / Coreopsis

Early in the summer, I dipped a wool/silk blend scarf in a gold dye bath then I set it aside to overdye and this week was the time.

The first dye bath was marigold/coreopsis and in the silk/wool it gave a nice gold color.  Next, I folded and tied with a two pieces of wood for the resist and then dyed in indigo.  What happened–the lagniappe of the piece–there were edgings of brown as well as the indigo blue.

Indigo is a great dye to use.
It gives good color
But not THE blues
