Dyeing with Rhubarb
Left, 8/2 reeled silk mordanted; Centre, wool, no mordant; Right, wool, no mordant;
Rhubarb roots - 250 gm. , cleaned, chopped, covered with water, then simmered for an hour and left to cool overnight. Next day the dye bath was strained and one skein wool added, brought to a bare simmer for about an hour. I then left the dye bath sitting for about 10 days and was going to throw it out.
