Sources for supplies:
More fun supplies arrived for natural dyeing and the garden. I am so anxious to get to both of them, although I have most of the supplies necessary, now, for the garden, and I’m still waiting on several for the natural dye experiments to commence.
So, let’s start with what I received for the garden. 100 peat pellets so I can start my seeds in the house and 500 plant tags. This last item should last me several years. In fact, I might use a specific colored tag for each year I plant something.
As for the natural dyeing supplies, I received these:
Citric acid to shift pH, and soda ash for scouring cellulose fibers.
And the last of the yarns I need – linen and silk. I already have plenty of wool and cotton yarns in my stash, but needed these two. Now just to get the fabrics I ordered in the mail. I should see them next week, and we can start the series on natural dyeing.
I feel like a mad scientist, sitting here and rubbing my hands together in anticipation of all of the fun this spring and summer will bring. You just wait and see what’s coming!!!
One step closer to mordanting some cotton and linen.
