Natural Dye

Posted 11/19/2016 4:24pm by Eugene Wyatt.

Black Walnuts fall from their trees in October. As a natural dye they make an unusual golden brown color.

Dominique gathers them from the farm driveway and soaks them in spring water for about 2 weeks.

She mordants the yarn with alum and dyes the yarn with the Black Walnut liquor producing a delicious golden brown color. 

A worsted weight singles (2 ounces = 140 yards) to be knit with US #8 needles.

Available in Special Orders.
