Jagten på orange - Hunting for Orange

     Forleden fik jeg to poser gyldenris. Jeg klippede blomsterne - der skulle give den bedste farve - af nogle af dem og farvede den halve mængde uld. Fraven blive gyldengult som navnet siger.
     Det skulle være rigtigt godt at overfarve på gyldenris-gult, så det måtte prøves.
     Fordi jeg er den underlige ugle, ville jeg også prøve den anden vej - altså overfarvning af kastanjeskalsfarven i gyldenrisgryden.
     Her under ses resultatet, jeg synes afgjort bedst om dne orange, der er fremkommet vea at overfarve med gyldenris frem for på gyldenris.

Some days ago I was given two big bags of goldenrod, and I just had to do some testing. I cut off the flowers of a portion of the flowers and dyed half the amount of wool. This gave a radiant golden yellow, suitable for the name of the flower.
Goldenrod should work well when overdyeing, and as I'm hunting for orange I had to try. Because I'm a quirky owl, I had to try the other way around as well; that is overdyeing with gildenrod instead.
I must admit that I like the orange, thah comes from overdyeing with goldenrod better. The recommended - overdyeing of the goldenrod yellow - gives a to me uneven and dull colour.

  1. Cool! Af forskellige årsager kom jeg aldrig i skoven, så ingen skaller her i huset.

  2. Cool colour! I dyed with goldenrod to obtain this vibrant yellow but quite forgot the ratio of the plant material to wool :(
