More dyes.


 Nå har jeg plantefarget de fire hvite håndspunne garnhespene jeg kjøpte på marked for litt siden.
Her i skygge...


Now I have dyed the four handspun skeins of white wool yarn I bought at a market a little while ago.
Here the dyed skeins are in shade...



 ...og i solskinn på bildet under.

...and in sunshine in the photo below.



 Garnet er farget med, fra venstre; gullris, ryllik, eikeblader og lav.

The skeins were dyed with (from left to right) goldenrod, yarrow, oak leaves and lichen.



Gullris har jeg farget med for første gang, og resultatet ble en nydelig gulgrønn farge. Jeg er veldig fornøyd og kommer absolutt til å farge mer med gullris.
Eikebladene plukket jeg et annet sted denne gang, og de farget garnet brunt.
Laven jeg har farget med er blærelav. Garnet så ut til å bli mørkebrunt, men fargen festet dårlig, og garnet ble bare sandfarget. Blærelav kan farge rosa når man lager en fargeblanding av lav og ammoniakk, så det har jeg tenkt å prøve en gang senere.


This was my first dye with goldenrod, and the result was a gorgeous yellow-green colour. I am really happy with it, and will definately dye more with goldenrod.
For this dye I picked oak leaves in a different place than earlier, and they dyed the yarn brown.
The lichen I used for this dye was Lasallia pustulate. The dye pot looked dark brown, however the colour did not fasten to the yarn and left only a light sand/beige colour. Lasallia lichen can dye pink when making a mix of lichen and ammonia, something I plan to try once later.




 Og her er mitt nyeste farge-eksperiment. Denne gang skal jeg prøve meg på en annen fargingsteknikk; gjæringsfarging.
I dunken er det fargebrygg av malurt, som er ferdig gjæret og klart til siling og farging.

For mer om denne teknikken og nydelig garn farget på denne måten se bloggen http://shadesoflynx.blogspot.com


And here is my latest dye experiment. This time I will try to make a fermentation dye, which is a different plant dye methode than I the one I usually use.
In my container is a fermented dye liquid made from wormwood which is ready to be sieved.

Hei, Hilde!
Så lekkert!
Rene jevne fine farger. Så artig at du utvikler dine kunnskaper om farging, med naturens planter m.m.

Jeg har strikkemaskin på min liste over ting jeg gjerne vil anskaffe meg.
Ha en fin torsdag!
klem

Anne said...

Hi Hilde, brilliant results.Do you have anything planned to make with the wool in particular?

Hilde said...

Thank you for your kind words, Tomoko :) Plant dyeing is a lot of work, but very fun and rewarding.

Takk Jorunn :) Håper du snart får din strikkemaskin. Det skal bli gøy å se hva du lager.
Ha en fortsatt fin kveld :) Klem.

Thanks Anne :) I have no particular plans for this wool, but as it is a bit rough I guess I will use it for some knitted and felted items.

Marylene said...

Love the colours, especially the green !
Ah... Wormwood ! Never tried it. I can't wait to see the results.
Thanks for putting the link :)
Have a nice day Hilde

What an inspiring post Hilde! Your colours are really amazing! And I can´t wait to here more on those new dyeing-methods you are testing out. I´ve wanted to try this lichen-ammonia thing for some time now to see if you can really get this pink colour out of it... this is so exciting!

Hilde said...

Thanks Marylene :) I too am very excited about how the wormwood dye will turn out.
Hope you had a lovely day. And have a happy weekend :)

Thanks for your nice words, Kristin :) Yes, natural dyeing really is exciting!! I would love to hear about it if you try the lichen + ammonia dye.
Have a wonderful weekend :)

Nydelige farger, Hilde!

Yael said...

Another marvelous post with a lot of information about yarn dyeing!
You achieved wonderful results again Hilde! :-)

Hilde said...

Takk, Ingvild :) Og ja, plantefarger er naturlige og fine.

Thanks, Yael :) I am really happy with these colours.

Fjæring, spennende, ser frem mot resultatet, blir det annerledes farger eller sterkere?
Blærelav har jeg ikke funnet, sukk, hadde gjerne prøvd. Men gullris vokser her, måne tro jeg forsøker, men dine ekeblad i minnet gir meg litt håp om dine farger. Hvordan får du det til, med lilla og brunt, avundsjuk blir jeg.
Nydelig garn :)
