Lansko barvanje 1. del - Last year's dyeing Part 1

Lani sem precej barvala, v glavnem poleti. Na vrtu so bujno cveteli koreopsisi in sem jih pridno obirala. Tako to gre: bolj jih obiraš, bolj cvetijo.
Najraje barvam s svežim materialom, a ravno pri tej rožici je cvetenje tako bujno, da jih ne morem sproti porabiti in jih tudi posušim za kasnejšo uporabo.





 
Last year I did quite a lot of dyeing especially during summer. The coreopses in my garden grew and bloomed copiously and I collected the flowers almost every other day. This is the way they go: the more you collect the flowers the more new flowers they make.
I prefer dyeing with fresh material but coreopsis is one of the dyeing plants flowering so profusely I cannot use all the flowers as I pick them so I dry them for later use.

Barvala sem v glavnem volno. Kot (skoraj) vedno je to domača volna jezersko-solčavske pasme





I dyed mostly wool yarn. As (almost) always this was farmer's wool from Slovenian Jezersko-Solčava sheep breed.

Modre, zelene in oranžne - Blues, greens and oranges

Ta julij je pri meni močno moder in zelen pa tudi precej oranžen.
Barvanje samo ni bilo nič posebnega, tako kot po navadi, barve so pa, vsaj v mojih očeh, res lepe. Še nekaj slik.
This past July has been mainly in the blues, greens and in the oranges.
The dyeing process was nothing special, just the standard procedure, and the colours are really pretty, at least to my eyes. Here are some more pictures.
