colours



the camera inertprets colours.
the green skein in the bottom picture is cotton for lace(?) dmc no 60, dyed in a mix of various rhamnus berry dyebaths, simmered and left in the sun, where they fermented happily and smellily, in the company of a small piece of rusty iron.
the same skein, in the picture above it, with stronger light from the sun. maybe it it foretelling poor lightfastness.
the same skein in the top picture, lower right looks beige (!) in the company of indigo blues, which in their turn look quite washed out and grey......
on my monitor, the last foto is truer, and the little skein is eucalyptus.
the beginning colour of the cotton is ecru
I'm getting more cotton to leave in the pomegranate and madder
