Syrefrø - - 4 - - Dock Seed

     Og så mistede Uglemor tålmodigheden med de syrefrø. Vandet efter 4. bad var stadig en dyb, dyb rød. Uglemor hældte ca. en tredjedel i en gryde på komfuret, kom fugtet garn i og kogte det. Det blev den farve, Uglemor normalt forbinder med syrefrø, nemlig ræverød.

     Her er en oversigt over alle syrefrøsfarvede bundter til nu. Og nu har Uglemor fået nok af undvigende orange og farver med noget helt andet.

MotherOwl lost patience with dock seeds. She ladled up some of the still intensely ruby red dye soup in a pot, put in yet another soaked mini-skein, and left it to boil for some time. The skein turned the expecter fox colour.

An overview over all dock seed dyed mini-skeins so far. MotherOwl is tired of hunting elisive orange colours, and will dye with ohter flowers in the coming days.
