and now wools

fluorescent orange!!these mushrooms are awesome. the wool was mordanted in alum + cot then put in the dye  simmering liquor for about an hour. left there to cool until next day and resulted in this very bright orange, very similatr to mx deep orange.
the other skein is boiled over madder yucky brownish red. it will be overdyed in cochineal today, but need to throw away some dye to liberate at least one pot. such is the life of a wanna be dyer!
waiting for the weather to change to start the ai vat. in the meantime sewing a muslin for a skirt. need to get the fitting right before cutting the actual fabric. i have lost weight-not complaining- and what was valid last year isn't this year.
