Standard colour, acid modifier, alkali modifier, on copper mordant, iron modifier.
Next dyeing day: Thursday
We will be dyeing with fig:
Beech and ivy:
The fig prunings have been soaking for a couple of weeks now and the water is looking, well, scummy, but there is no colour. The oak, which has leaves attached, has been soaking for just a few days, and the ivy will be chopped straight into the dye bath without prior soaking.
