Virtual Dye Challenge - final in the series

The Virtual Dye Day Challenge was a chance for all of us to explore our surroundings and gardens for new sources of dyeing material. In this final update from Di Kearney, she writes: "I used madder from my own garden. I hadn't dried it for as long as I should have but had left it soaking for about a month. I heated it to 60 degrees and kept it at that for an hour. Then I strained it and added alum mordanted wool to the dye bath and left it in there without further heating for an hour.

It's a very pretty colour."

Thank you Di for sharing your adventures with us all!
