Dyeing with Red Cabbage – Tingir com Couve Roxa

June 12, 2013

A dyeing experiment with red cabbage, inspired again by my favorite book. It didn’t turn out as great as I expected. The colour is very interesting, with subtle nuances of blue and grey. But it is quite light. My handspun  merino yarn was dyed with a 150% WOF of red cabbage. Should have used more, but I am happy just to see it works.

Uma experiência com lã e couve roxa, inspirada mais uma vez pelo meu livro favorito. Não correspondeu inteiramente às expectativas. A cor é interessante, com nuances de azul e cinzento. Mas o tom é muito claro e leve. Tingi este fio de merino fiado por mim com 150% de couve roxa (150% do peso da lã). Devia ter usado mais, mas já fiquei satisfeita em ver que resulta.
