shades of cosmos



Instead of fresh plants, you can also try to use dried ones and dye the yarn using the same method I'm describing on this blog: Fermented herbal dyes


Here I used dried Sulfur Cosmos flowers (Cosmos sulphureus) harvested last year



The yarn is Orenburg kidsilk mohair lace

  1. I just love the colour (yummy !). Thank you for the tip. Bisous ensoleillés (c'est enfin l'été).

  2. The colour is absolutely gorgeous!!

    We are going away on holiday in a week, and when we come back I will start up my first dye container. I'm very curious and I can't wait to try :)
