I have no idea about dying but Suzanne does so I just muddle along and what I end up with is pure chance.
We were looking for subtle colours(don't aske me to name the colours of the dyes that we used 'cos I haven't a clue) anyway we felt that they were getting a bit dark -not what we wanted-so we washed them out a bit earlier than we should have done.
I am happy with the pieces that I experimented with but I haven't yet seen the ones that Suzanne did.
I love this soft antique rose colour- just what I wanted because I want to make some vintage stuff for the exhibition sales table.
This was a white hand croched doiley --I love it.
Here are some different fabrics--top left a fine linen-right felt-bottom left-scrim and a piece of furnishing braid.
The colours are a bit dark but I am happy with them.
This is felt and laces and they are beautiful--well I think so anyway.
