Leaf Green

Green dye

The challenge here was to attempt to replicate an exact match of colour with a sample leaf.  Naomi’s considerable experience in working with food colouring as a wool dye managed to quickly reproduce a very credible match on alpaca.  An attempt at home using merino produced a slightly lighter colour, but still within the same tone. The yarn on the left side of the leaf was the alpaca we dyed at the cottage, and on the right the merino I dyed at home using the same ratio.  By Debbie.
