Fermentation dye results.

Nå har jeg avsluttet fermenteringsfargingene med reinfann og gullris som har pågått siden midten av august.
Det har vært spennende og lærerikt, og jeg er fornøyd med resultatene. 
Synes det fungerte bedre enn det gjorde i fjor. Kanskje fordi jeg hadde gjort meg noen erfaringer med fargemetoden i fjor, eller kanskje fordi plantene i utgangspunktet er gode fargeplanter? 
Jeg kommer til å gjenta dette igjen neste sommer.


Now the fermetation dyes made from tansy and goldenrod that have been going on since mid August are finsihed.
It has been fun, I have learned a lot and I am happy about how they dyes turned out in the end.
I think these fermentation dyes worked better than last year's. Perhaps because I had learned a little from last year's dyes, or perhaps because tansy and goldenrod in fact are good dye plants?
I will definately do more fermentation dyes next summer.



Gullris så i utgangspunktet ut til å farge oransje-aktig, men det endelige resultatet ble mer rosa. Veldig fornøyd :)
Jeg registrerte også at reinfann-badene ble ganske raskt tappet for fargestoff, mens gullris-badene holdt lenger.
Etterhvert som væsken minket i fargebadene blandet jeg sammen de to basiske fargebadene for å få mer væske.
Resultatene av blandingsfargingen ble tilnærmet identisk med gullris-fargen.


At first it seemed that goldenrod was dyeing an orange shade, however the final result is more to the pink side. I'm very happy about it :)
I noticed that the tansy dye baths ran out of color agent rather quickly, while the goldenrod baths lasted a lot longer.
When the amount of dye liquids in the jars had decreased I mixed the alkaline dye baths into one jar to be able to continue dyeing.
The results of the mixed dyes were rather identical to the pure goldenrod dyes. 



Resultatene. Tilsammen 900 gram garn farget.

The results. 900 grams of dyed wool alltogether.

i like your fermentation colours very much, dear Hilde,

The plants seem to reveal through a secret alchemical transformation process even colors they did not offer at first.

Hote to do similar next year.

Så stilig.
Koselig å kunne farge garnet selv.

Ha en fin dag.

You achieved such lovely, soft and warm hues, Hilde! They are perfect for Autumn and recall its colors so beautifully!

Hello Hilde, my mum used to grow goldenrod in her garden, but I had no idea you could use it to make a dye.
The photograph with all the colours together in the basket is just gorgeous.

Nydelige farger. Jeg faller alltid for farger som vi finner igjen i naturen!
Du har tilegnet deg mange nyttige erfaringer om farging av det som planter fra naturen!
Fantastisk!
Ha en fin fredag!
