Suvevärvid

Eksperimenteerisin mitme taimega. Kõik on külmvärvimise tulemus. Kõigepealt hoidsin õisi/lehti veepurkides päiksepaistelises kohas mitu päeva ning siis panin purkidesse maarjajääga peitsitud meriinolõnga. Lõnga hoidsin purkides samuti mitu päeva.

I experimented with several plants. I used solar dyeing. First I kept blossoms/leaves in water jars for several days in a sunny place outdoors. Then I put premordanted merino yarn to the jars and kept the yarn there for several days. I used alum as mordant.

Allpool fotod nende taimdedega, millega sain lõnga koos pildistada. Mõnda taime enam pildistamise hetkes polnud.

First some photos with the plants. I didn't manage to make such photos with all the colors because I didn't have some plants anymore when dyeing was finished.

Saialill / Calendula:


Tumeroosad roosiõied / Dark pink rose blossoms:


Karikakar / Oxeye daisy:


Punane liilia / Red lily:


Alõtša lehed / Cherry plum leaves:


Ja nüüd kõige suurem üllatus. Elulõng! Selline nägi välja leotusvesi:

And now the biggest surprise. Clematis! This is how the dyeing water looked like:


Ja siin on tulemus! Sinine! Igaks juhuks loputasin lõnga äädikaga segatud vees. Äädikas pidavat värvi kinnitama.

And here's the result. Blue! Just in case I rinsed the yarn in the water where I had added a little vinegar. Vinegar is said to set the color.


Ja nüüd kogu värvipalett:
The whole color palette:
