The thing about natural dyeing is you never know what is going to come out of the dye pot.

Each skein has its own personality...

The smokey lavender of Logwood.

Cheerful salmon that reminds me of summer begonias
which was a result of dyeing with marigolds from the garden and 
some cochineal.  If you look closely there are these
lovely tangerine undertones.

Buttery marigold from the summer garden.  
I froze all the blooms I could stuff into the freezer.

So hard to let them go..

Hoping to get some summer cheer this winter
from the frozen blooms.


These skeins have been listed in the Etsy Shop
if you care to enjoy some colors of nature.


  1. They are all so beautiful I wouldn't know which one to choose...all!
    You are so good at this natural dyeing Leigh- really lovely. Wonderful to see how it can produce such a saturated color.

  2. So beautiful...and so amazing that all of these colors come from nature...that lavender is gorgeous.
