Natural dye samplers

October 17, 2014

These  pieces have been off the loom for a while but I  haven’t had time to weave in the ends, press, and hem them.  Finally had a chance to get that done,  the wedge weave piece is interesting as each row has a selection of yarns from the same dye pot: silk, wool, superwashh wool, all of which take the dye differently.  The black is not naturally dyed, the other yarns are all dyed with natural dye extracts.
