I discovered something this week:
I really, really love to dye fibers with plants !
But I knew that already
of course I did ...
some lace merino and silk-alpaca dyed with Marigolds (Calendula officinalis) , using the fermentation method
In dutch this herb is called goudsbloem - gold flower -
And the colour is exactly that: the most exquisite light apricot gold !
The actual shade is difficult to capture with a camera but you get the idea
