Solfarvning: glassene tømmes / Solar dyeing: emptying the jars

Nu har solfarvningsglassene stået næsten 14 dage, og jeg vil se hvordan garnet er blevet!

Solfarveglas. Fra venstre: krap/oregano, sort tulipan, thuja/bærmispel. Det lille glas er en prøve med thuja / solar dyeing jars. From left: madder root/oregano, black tulip, thuya/juneberry leaves. Small glass: testing thuya.

Her hænger strømpegarnet (BFL-Steps) til tørre, og jeg er tilfreds!

Lys mintgrøn fra sort tulipan, en smuk og varm gul fra thuja/bærmispel og en ret varieret orange fra krap/oregano. / Light minty green, a varm and pretty yellow and a very variegated orange.

Nu vil jeg gå en lille tur på denne solrige midsommerdag. Forhåbentlig finder jeg plantemateriale til en omgang solfarvning mere. Hvad mon det bliver denne gang?

In English:
The second round of solar dyeing has come to an end, after 14 days of sunny and not-so-sunny days. I’m quite pleased with the results. Minty light green from the black tulip petals (second bath), a beautiful yellow from thuya and juneberry leaves and a quite variegated orange from the jar with madder root and oregano.
The yarn is sock yarn from my shop, BFL-Steps.
Now I’ll go for a walk on this beautiful midsommer day and pick plant material for the third round of solay dyeing.
