The first dyeing experiment – A primeira experiência de tinturaria

May 13, 2011

Used Osage sawdust at 20% WOF concentration with an alumen and cream of tartar mordant bath. This mini-skein was just a test and I am pleased to say it exceeded my expectations. The dye doesn’t even bleed much!  Already on the way to dye some 200 grams of this yarn in the same way.

Usei serradura de Osage (uma laranjeira Norte Americana) a 20% do peso da lã com um banho de mordente com alúmen e creme de tártaro. Esta mini-meada foi só um teste mas estou muito contente com os resultados. E nem deita muita tinta! Já tenho 200 gm de lã a tingir com a mesma cor.
