Color study

"I love to study the many things that grow below the corn stalks and bring them back to the studio to study the color. 

If one could only catch that true color of nature - the very thought of it drives me mad."

~Andrew Wyeth~

I've been wanting to try natural dyeing with daffodils since last spring.

So this year, I gathered...dyed some super soft
merino/silk (non-SW) and..


off white.

Re-gathered, gave the yarn a second trip through
the dye bath and ended up with the above.

A creamy yellow beige.

Not what I was expecting, but then that's 
what I love about natural dyeing.  You never
really know what will come from the dye pot.
