Heather turned into a fantastic golden yellow on white yarn, and took on a greenish hue on undyed grey yarn. I was thrilled. My camera refuses to capture the colours in all their magnificence, but you get the gist.
|Dyed and undyed yarn for a side by side comparison.|
Even though I'd ended up with a colour that wasn't yellow, I still felt like experimenting, and remembered I had some useless food colouring lying around. I used vinegar as a fixative.
|The colours are a bit bolder in person.|
And then over to plant dyes again - powdered paprica. The colour turned out a nice orange, but not as deep as I'd expected.
And here's a picture of all the colours I've made so far. I love how the golden heather yarn pops forth here (left, under the blue).
