Solar patient

You need a lot of patients for dyeing. ; The red succulent flowers were put in the glass jar, in the sun for 3 days. I strained the water, put it back in the jar, and added 1/2 a tsp of vinegar. I mordant diff fabrics with soy and water for 2 days, let it dry, and added to the jar. I'll share the results of the dyed fabrics when ready. ; 2 new jars added to my solar dyeing experiment, avocado pit and green maple leaves. ; Thank you to India Flint for her wonderful book Eco Colour.
