Lupin dye.

Nå har jeg gjort mine første plantefarginger med lupinblomster, og må si at jeg ble veldig fornøyd med resultatet. Garnet fikk en nydelig ren grønnfarge, og dette frister absolutt til gjentakelse.

Lupiner vokser overalt rundt her, og det tok ikke lang tid å samle sammen nok blomster for å fylle gryta.

Fra dette:


Now I have done the first dyes with lupin flowers, and I have to say that I was very pleased with the result. The yarn dyed a lovely clear mintish green colour, and I would definately dye more yarn with lupins later.

There are lupins growing anywhere along the roads around here, so it did not take me long to gather enough flowers to fill the pot.

Jeg har gjort to separate farginger. Første gang farget jeg 150 gram garn. Garnet tok all fargen i gryta slik at det ikke gikk å farge en gang til i samme fargebad.
Dermed plukket jeg en ny haug med blomster, kokte fargebad og farget 100 gram garn til.
Det er en liten nyanseforskjell på garnet fra de to fargingene, men fargene er helt nydelig :)


I have done two different lupin dyes. The first time I dyed 150 grams of yarn. The yarn sucked up all the dye from the pot, so I was unable to dye a second time in the same dyeing pot.
So I went out again to gather more flowers, made a new dye and dyed another 100 grams of yarn.
There is a slight different in the colour from the two dyes, but what a gorgeous result :)

Hi, Hilde! You dyed the yarn clear mintish green using the blue Lupin – what a fascinating result. I think I know how exciting it was to await for the outcome.

Hi Hilde, I would never have guessed it would have turned out a green colour, amazing!

So beautiful! Isnt it amazing how different the colour emerges. I actually exclaimed out loud. "This is amazing" and my oldest son is teasing me. LOL Well, I think it is and I absolutely LOVE the colour it turned out. Thanks for the morning smiles. Hugs xoxox

Vilken härlig grönfärg. Jag avundas, lupiner, hitter jag det? Får man lov att plocka efter vägkanten? Jag väntar spänt på din bok :)
