This kitchen dyeing was a success!! I used the leftover pomegranate rinds. Yup, the seeds were great!! I remember as a child my dad ate this bloody looking fruit and I wouldn’t eat it because it was icky looking. Silly girl. When I discovered how good they tasted, my dad laughed and laughed.
I arashi folded (pole wrapped) and dipped in the pomegranate bath. And, then re-wrapped in the opposite direction and dipped in my re-activated indigo bath. (Which had been partially activated using the leftover pomegranate water.)
My weaving guild is holding a challenge to use paper in a fiber process. I up-cycled/repurposed a paper catalog–dyeing it with arashi folds, too. This is going to be the background.
Nice day here that promises spring and Happy jumped in the picture!
