Saturday it wasn’t a gazillion degrees out, hooray! And with rain forcast for Sunday, I knew I had to make the most of a good day for dyeing, so I did!
Then, it was time for some more indigo dyeing! I set up under the shade of our pomegranate tree:
And started dipping!
Here’s what I ended up with after washing and drying:
I tried to make these fabrics very dark blue, and I believe that I succeeeded! I’ll tell you, indigo dyeing is a lot more “loosy goosey” than the dyeing I do with Procion MX dyes. With fiber reactive dyes, I weigh the fabric I’m dyeing, carefully measure the dye and water I use, and I can predict the hue and intensity of the final colors. Indigo, not so much!
