I had enough salt for 5 batches of colour. I chose raspberry, soft brown, purple, royal blue and grass green. I have picked up all my colours from G&S Dye in Toronto ON.
Its been a long time since I dyed fabrics. The techniques are subtly different from yarn. It was a lot of fun trying things out. And then some stuff, like untying wet knots, was no fun at all. I got a chance to use my respirator full face mask, instead of just playing around with it on Halloween!
I still have some finishing touches to add to these scarves. Here is a peak of the scarves drying.
I love how the different patterns showed up.
These all still need to be fixed, then rinsed. So far silk has held every colour I have thrown onto it. Hemp yarns have dyed up very well, and the hemp fabrics look really nice.
