Natural Dyeing Experiment No. 1!

Inspired by the amazing dye garden project I discovered on the New York Textile Arts Center's website (see it here - certainly worth a look!) I decided it was well time to try my hand at natural dyeing. Thanks to Kim Hall from the EtsyLabs for this video on simple natural dyeing.

I used turmeric on calico, jute twine and my own handspun merino wool - see the process and results below!
