This funky scarf is a stash-buster!! I used some natural dyed yarns and combined them with store-bought variegated yarn. The scarf is very loosely woven. Some of the yarn felted so that gives the scarf a better structure.
There were two sets of yarn. Part was dyed with pomegranate. I dyed with the the rinds after eating the fruit! The second part was dyed with black walnut and over-dyed with indigo to make it darker.
I was experimenting with a method of changing color intensity that I learned in a workshop with Mary Zicafoose (http://www.maryzicafoose.com) In the workshop, we used acid dyes, and measured out the dye in milliliters and the dye in grams. Not so formal here…I boiled up the pomegranate rinds, filtered out the plant material. Then I used an increasing amount of the dye liquor with my wool. It’s a very subtle flow of color saturation; so subtle, I may be the only one to see it!!
