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
