yesterday i finished mordanting the linen odd shaped shrug. it was an alum tannin -alum mordant to be then dyed with the vintage lichen brew. the resulting beige is very close to natural unbleached linen  and i liked the result so much that it is staying as is. a glimpse of  before  whiter than white here .
 the above; blocking with my other than standard blocking board. using styrofoam that came in the box with the new computer until i get downtown to buy a more adequate piece of styrofoam.

  1. dyeing cloth always brings such wonderful surprises.

  2. Pensavo che i licheni dessero dei colori violetti! Questo tessuto sembra così leggero e delicato, cos ci farai?

  3. lovely texture and color!
