Onion Skin Dyeing

A couple of weeks ago we did an onion skin dyeing day.  Everyone saved all of their onion skins, brown or red.  All got mixed in together.  Anyone who wanted to put some fibre or yarn into the dyepot brought it in that day.  Everyone got an early start so that the dyeing could be done in the morning.  Lee did a lot of stirring as you can see above.

The dyepot looks a great colour.

Gaye is taking some of the fibre from the dyepot and squeezing out the water.

This fibre has a great hue, and will look fantastic when spun.

Deb is having some fun with her skein of wool that is still damp.  A great success.
