Another plant I never got to dye with until this summer ! Mostly because it doesn't grow in our warm climate (I'm in southern France), but I picked it at (now what used to be) my parents' summer house. (well, around, that is, not in the garden !) I'm talking about achillea millefolium, aslo known as common yarrow.
Really nice colors, specially on wool, linen & the tie-dyed waffle cotton. (which seems to be taking the dyes well, at each dyeing, that must be the weave) Proud and honored I could use this plant for one of my dyeings !
On a side note, I'm slowly but surely building stock for the next shop update, which should happen last week of August or first week of September.
If you want to be updated with the shop news, follow me on Twitter or on Facebook ! Thank you !
This summer I also used salvia officinalis (sage) leaves again. I got a different result, specially on silk, for which I had higher hopes. But wool did take up very well, & linen got a surprising color too, so that's fine with me !
The leaf I used for the photo was starting to feel ... tired, oops.
Since salvia officinalis grows in my inlaws' garden, I'll be dyeing with it again for sure.
