Royal Purple and Old Gold


1 in stock


Every year I experiment with different varieties of dyes in solar pots in order to get slightly different and rich colours.  Using four dyes in a pot is complex and complicated especially when layered with fibres that take up the dyes differently . Taking into account the weather you can see why I am so excited when something works. The Royal purple is Logwood and cochineal increasing lightfastness  and the bronze of Persian berries has a secret tweak I shall not give a way as next year this will a new kit.
