Dandelion Flower dye

Dandelion Flower dye

June 01, 2005

1 skein (4 oz) of Briggs & Little Heritage yarn in "washed white", mordanted in alum and simmered in 8 oz of steeped dandelion flowers. No colour came of this until I added ammonia as a modifier after dyeing - that made the yellow magically appear and wow, is it ever bright!
