I spent the summer dying with native Mi. plants, before Deb came I sent to Dharma for natural dyes from around the world. We had great success with them. Here's Deb beginning not long after she arrived at my house. This moss I bought quite a few years ago from S. Dakota (it was dried), it made a bright yellow which I over dyed at the end with indigo.
This is alkanet bark, it dyed a purple gray.
Deb and I the last day at the stove.
cutch, osage orange, moss overdyed with indigo, all other yellows overdyed with indigo, the last one was one of my boring golds manipulated, and overdyed with cochineal. My favorite fabrics are my boring gold ones from summer manipulated and overdyed.
We manipulated (tied) these different ways and overdyed them. They make great applique fabric.
My final picture, I can't wait to cut into them. (Deb, your fabric will be in the mail next week)
