February 1st!!! spring is close. here in NE Washington/n Idaho spring is in the air. Robins are back, day light is coming back, the sun is peeking out a bit more, more rain than snow is falling, you can just feel spring is in the air. I think back to our nearly 30 years in Minnesota, where February was still the depths of winter, no relief from the bitter cold and heavy snow till April. It was hard, yet we enjoyed the benefits of this winter wonder land. skiing at mt Frontenac, x-c skiing at a friends place and on the lake, sledding at Clear Lake park, one Valentines day we launched our hot air balloon from and flew to another frozen lake at 7 below ! 

Now I snow shoe around our 5 acres and dye lots of wool with sunny YELLOWS! 

this is my new yarn Sunny Dreams.

July 20, 2017

Today I am dyeing wool with my iris flowers. As the iris flowers were spent i plucked them off and froze them. Now i need the freezer space for berries, cherries and peaches. So here is my recipe:

Heat the flowers, in a large pot with well water to 110* added the mordant wool. Let them soak a good hour being careful to keep temp low, under 130. Remove the wool and let dry. They looked purply blue in the pot, but upon pulling out they are more a greeny blue w a hint of purple. Maybe I have it too hot for purple and teal to stick. Add more wool as i could see I had a lot f color in my pot. Finding more yarn and roving to mordant and dye I left it sit over night after the initial 130 * for an hour. This pot sat for several days, just because there was still a lot of color left and I wanted to see if these skeins came out darker w a longer soak. They did not. All of this I let hang for several weeks to dry, always checking color fading. Then several skeins I washed, hand rinsed in warm water. Any purpleyness washed out, but a pretty soft green remained. The rest sat a good year in a basket near a window, not direct sunlight, to see any difference. The silk blend roving I spun then washed and any purplyness washed out also. But I do love the remaining greens.

 

16 ounces of purple iris flowers

at least 5 pounds of wool and mohair.

Alum and cream of tarter ,¼ the weight each of the dye matter per dye bath

 

how I mordant the wool:

soak wool a good hour.

dissolve alum and cot in hot water

add to mordant pot. of cool water.

add wetted wool.

Raise temp to 180* simmer 45 mn. Let cool. I keep lid on
