The 2016 crop has now all been  picked and dried.  All the sun we ahd thsi summer means that it is giving a particularly good yellow.

Dyers Chamomile gives a soft warm yellow and with ammonia a rich almost golden yellow.   Adding iron gives a wonderful soft green.   Dyers Chamomile is a nice dye to use to demonstrate with as the colour pours out almost as soon as you put the flower heads in water.

Dyers Chamomile has been grown in either mine or the Dye garden which  belong to Enys Davies who grows the plants for me

Nothing artificial is added to the garden and the flowers have been dried.
