Gathered cones from what I assume is Picea abies, since that’s what they look like and what is most common in a Danish forest. Just a standard tap water simmer job, no research into pH or other methods.

Intense looking dyebath – will it take?

I wonder if they have more juice in them?

Ok result on mordanted Dorset. The orange stuff is same wool from a little madder pot, that I couldn’t be bothered sorting for the photo.

Unmordanted wool in the leftover dyebath, with an “exhausted” 35 g of madder thrown in as well. Half the skein dunked in iron water after, then rinsed. I normally let dry before I rinse, but, not today.

Kogler af rødgran

En lille farvetest af indsamlede kogler fra efteråret. Ulden er Dorset, som var bejset på forhånd. Den orange portion er farvet med lidt kraprod (ikke kogler) og garnet er fra resten af koglevandet, derefter halvt dyppet i jernvand og skyllet. Det var lidt mere brunt inden skyl, men sådan er det jo en gang imellem.
