We all love Eucalyptus cordata and the colours we get when eco dyeing. Di Kearney has achieved some interesting results here using different modifiers and wool.
Di said "I have had a large garbage bag full of leaves and some bits of stalks lying around from when our Cordata tree died 2 - 3 years ago. I soaked them for several days and they gave an orange colour in the water but I could see that it was not strong. After dyeing I removed one skein from the bath with some of the dye bath water so it could cool down and continue to soak. To the others I added a weak iron modifier. The darker silk one is the modified one. The colours are a bit more golden than they appear in this photo. I have christened these two "wheat" and "brass." The other skein is the oddment skein of plied natural coloured yarn. (Wool and Alpaca) and the lighter colour has turned a khaki green."
