Gorgeous colours from nature

Dyeing is still in progress, the mulberries are still falling so I’m still picking them up. Had good results with weld, golden rod and buddleia, some lovely yellows and golds and all the berries are giving me pinks, purples and lavender shades. Most surprising is what happens if you add a little copper sulphate crystals to the pan with the plant liquor. Also found that stronger colours occur when sea salt is added to the dye pot liquor. More buddleia, golden rod, mulberries to come.
