The summer sun brings the ideal weather for dyeing outside… Dyes always work better in heat.
So that’s what I’ve been doing this morning – standing with my back to the sun mixing colours for some Vegetarian Silk. However, the breeze was also rather strong – so I’ve been chasing dye containers too – as can be seen in the picture at the top. Yes, I did wear gloves – but the red one blew into the rose bush and I didn’t want to puncture them…..
Now it’s just a question of waiting for a few more hours and then the rinsing will begin. Vegetarian silk is very delicate in its wet state. It is easy to destroy it completely. However, slowly and gently is the key, and the results are always worth waiting for.
