Creating colour

The sun was up early this morning, so I put some wool in my solar ovens. I used my usual natural dye materials; walnut leaves, fennel flowers and leaves, onion skins, and avocado peels.

The onion skins I started the day before.

By the end of the day there was a bit of colour showing.

Here is some grey yarn I dyed on the weekend with onion skins.

I will leave the wool in the ovens for another day to deepen the colours, then they will be ready to spin!
