Rød uld! -- Red Wool!

    Så har Uglemor fået endnu en idé. Til den er hun bare nødt til at fravige sine "dogmeregler" ;) Der skal nemlig bruges rødt. NU! Heldigvis havde Uglemor af søde mennesker fået forærende en kasse med blandede plantefarverting, deriblandt en bøtte kraprod. Den vidunderlige gryde gør, at temperaturen kan holdes under 70 grader. Det ser til gengæld ud til at det skal varmes op flere gange for at blive rigtig mørkt. Det har den rette nuance, det er bare alt for lyst. Det skulle gerne ende med en rigtig intens, mørk kraprød. 
      Senere og efter hjælp fra diverse grupper viste det sig at ulden skulle varmes til 90 grader for at blive rigtig flot.

MotherOwl has yet a new idea. To realize this idea she has to forgo following the Dogme-dyeing rules. MotherOwl needs red wool. Now!

Luckily MotherOwl was gifted with a bag full of not any more in use-natural dye remedies some time ago. Among those were some madder roots. MotherOwl took the wonderful pot, some white wool, her dye-books, and some madder roots and set to work. After one or two tries, she consulted various communities and found out that her method was faulty. She tried again, now at 90 degrees celcius, and that did it! Red wool in the right hue.

  •  Her hænger den røde uld så til tørre sammen med endnu noget af mine hvide fårehamme.         
  •  Red wool drying with some more of the white from the happy sheep.
