Hey everyone! I had a very good day today. I went out a collected some Horsetail that I’ll be using to dye yarn! Though today that’s actually not what I’ll be dyeing with. I’ll be using some Forget-Me-Not blossoms that I prepared earlier, and prepare the Horsetail for dyeing later.
I’m using a sweater sleeve off an old sweater I gathered from the thrift store the other day. I’m also using a vinegar mordant, even though I know it doesn’t last for very long. No one near me sells alum at a good price, and I can’t afford to get it online (yet). I don’t know if the forget-me-nots will even dye the yarn, but I’m certainly going to try.
