dye results

Not so fierce anymore. It's hard to say if the intensity loss was due to the advanced age of the dyes or the temps outside which were chilly at best.

All subtle and interesting. Some destined for other treatments. You can see the woven pattern in those pricey sheets and the coarseness of the linen. You can click on the picture for a close up.

I find it more challenging to find interesting lighter, softer fabrics and you have created quite a wonderful collection ... intentional or not.

FWIW, in my limited experience, temperature has had a greater effect than the age of dye.

subtle is good, no? I like the speckles.

I just finished my first dye session of the season too. I like the speckles you got on these. I like intense colors so much that I'm always pleased when things come out faded on their own because I can't bear to water down my dyes.

They are really beautiful and can't wait to see what you create with them.

well. i'm all thumbs tonite, just wrote a comment and deleted it at same time - wow, how talented is that....

Love this dye batch! Thinking I want some of that limey stuff. linen? - #2 and #4 in top row, [I've been on this lime green kick] - i.e. if you decide to put some in the handyed sections...lolol.


Love the soft colors, that's an area often neglected in stashes and by dyers...yours are beautiful!



Play it again Sam.
