Enda mer plantefarging

Etter å ha sølt og lekt med planter og fargekjemikalier den siste uka har kjedelig, hvitt garn blitt utseende som dette:

Plantefarger
 
1. Skjegglav med kobbersulfat 
2. Kjerringrokk 
3. Mjødurt 
4. Firkantperikum 
5. Reinfann med kobbersulfat
6. Oreblader med jernsulfat 
7. Kochenillelus og krapprot
8. Kochenillelus med vinstein
9. Kochenillelus, ettersuppe

After a week of playing with yarn, plants and cemicals, some boring white yarn turned out like this:

1. Witch's hair with copper
5. Common tansy with copper
6. Alder leaves with iron
8. Cocienal lice with cream of tartar
9. Cocienal lice, second bath

Lekre farger , til spise opp - eller til strikke med :-)

S utrolig nydelige farger!!! Nummer 7 var bare helt knall!!!! Jeg husker at vi farga garn p en speiderleir jeg deltok p. Det var utrolig artig!!!

Helene, you're so darned talented. I just want to do everything you do! Love the dying and the viking costumes. I'll just have to satisfy myself with the Dale patterns and the Russian socks! Wish I could join you on a weekend with close-to-real Vikings. I just got back from a long awaited trip to Iceland and Greenland, during which I read a book called Greenlanders, by Jane Smiley, (in English) about the vikings in early Greenland. Best wishes, Wendy

Your dye job is marvelous! I have yet to try my hands with koolaid.

S spennende lese om plantefarging :D Jeg har lenge hatt lyst til prve, og n vet jeg hvordan det skal gjres. Flott blogg du har, mye spennende ting du holder p med :)

Pirkedame!Har rettet det i bloggen.

i love #6 and #7. the colours are so vibrant. just out of curiosity, if you wanted a 'true' red would you mix more madder and less insect in the dyepot?

you are truly amazing. anything i give you is put to shame by what you have done. your magic yarn ball is in the mail i hope you enjoy it. i had a lot of fun putting it together, i started it right away and so i have even forgotten a few of the items in the middle. enjoy.

h s fina frger du ftt p garnet!!! Jag r sugen p att vxtfrga sjlv. Har ngra bcker men har inte nnu provat. Nu nr jag sett dina fina garner s kanske jag kommer mej fr ;) Ha en fin helg i vrmen. Hlsningar Maggan i Enkping

Sknne, sknne farver. Jeg fr frygtelig lyst til at prve det selv, nr jeg ser dine fine resultater.Hilsner Anni, Danmark
