Lee loves doing a bit of natural dyeing. She made a dyebath using privet seeds soaked for five days. The dyebath was a lovely purple colour. The wool above was premordanted with alum and cream of tartar. The fleece below had the same mordant added during the dyeing process. Lee was a little disappointed with the colour as she was hoping for something a bit more purple, but that’s dyeing for you. You get what you get! I like the colour though. It looks like it could have come from a natural grey sheep.
