Natural Dye Reds---Brazilwood plus Annatto

These turned out beautifully. I am having so much fun!

The Romney turned out in shades of rust, nice and bright. Delightful! I was a bit apprehensive that I might turn out with more of a brown.

And the bamboo is the color of a ripe peach skin, but a bit more lustrous.

Next up is madder, but this will take a few days. I plan to dye tomorrow and let the fiber sit in the dyebath until Monday. This is supposed to deepen the color and so patient I will be.

Wow! You have inspired me to want to try natural dying - and I've only just strted spinning - those colours positively glow.
