Fiber Retreat - Natural Dyeing

Two skeins of pima cotton dipped in the natural dye pots at Fiber Retreat '08. I had so much fun bopping from pot to pot and dunking my yarn. 8-]

First I dropped the skein in kamala, then I dipped it half way in broom, onion, osage. Then I gave it a half turn and dipped it in brazinwood. A little bit of variation in the depth gave me more gradual shade change.

This skein was dipped in kamala, then broom. I then gave it a half turn and dunked it very briefly in indigo. A little variation with the depth gave me a gradual change in shade. I like how the yellow-oranges gave me a teally blue when the indigo hit the yarn.
