Small time dyeing lately due to other diversions but …. playing with a mixture of pigments eventuated into what I call my stop & go scarves.
This one has tones of bark and red sap – very lovely.
Botanical dyed silk scarf.
One below shows a Shibori technique displaying sea-blues and leaf-greens with just a touch of earthy shades coming through.

Hand-dyed cotton yarn
A few bundles of white cotton yarn were hand-dyed using Procion MX dyes.
Starting with using straight colours was followed by mixing different colour combinations to create earthy tones. Using a size 13 Chenille needle, these thick yarns will be easily stitched into projects.
Perhaps these yarns will be incorporated into the Secret Santa gift that I will make for a group I belong to, the “Daughters on Dowling”. A very creative group who share a love of embroidery, traditional and contemporary.

Experimenting with dyes and resist whilst incorporating windblown leaves produced this silk scarf.
