Navadna krhlika (Rhamnus frangula) - Alder buckthorn



Končno rdečkaste (in oranžne) barve iz skorje krhlike. Krhlika je neugleden grm, ki ga nisem poznala in sem ga zaman skušala najti po slikah iz knjig in interneta. Končno mi je lani  poleti Marko Slapnik, direktor Rinke v Solčavi (Rinka Solčava), prijazno prinesel vejico, da sem "in vivo" spoznala ta grm. Potem sem seveda videla, da sem v Robanovem kotu (Robanov kot) vsa leta hodila mimo nje :-(
In po navodilih iz knjižice Helen Melvin (Helen Melvin) naredila barvilno kopel s fermentiranjem (beri: vse bolj smrdljivo, dlje ko sem barvala) začela dobivati prelepe barve.
Na slikah zgoraj je nekaj odtenkov na nekaj različnih volnah.
Fotografirala je pa Kati (ali Katka) v Centru domače in umetnostne obrti v Škofji Loki (DUO Škofja Loka).

Dear MamaLadka, do I understand you rigth if I say that you obtained these briliant colours througth a very smelly process described somewhere on Helen Melvins blog? The colours are truly amazing, and I think your flair for dyeing wool and taking pictures are truly first class.

Yes, Uglemor, I obtained these colours through a very smelly process I read about on Helen's blog. I ordered her booklet including info on fermentation dyeing with buckthorn bark and also 100 grams of dried barks. I then carried out two parallel procedures - one with Helen's bark and one with mine. Only then did I realize what I had was really buckthorn bark, only I had used an inappropriate dyeing procedjure before. I'm to publish these procedures and resulting colours in one of my future posts.

Wonderful. Please post in English as well. I love your colours, but my grasp of your beautiful language is not big enough to let me read it with any fluency.
Blessed Easter.
