More from Dyeing day 8 Jan

As well as these silk hankies we dyed feathers, angora, silk, Merino/bamboo mix as well as rovings and skeins spun from rare breed fleece. It was interesting to see the difference in the way fibres take dye. Bamboo, being cellulose was resistant, but silk and angora took up the dye very well indeed.
