Fall Flowers

A couple of weeks ago I did three different dye pots using plants from my dye garden. Here is the end result of the first pot. The color is a soft baby chick yellow. I think there is about 3 oz's of fiber that's ready to spin.

I used the marigold flowers from these very plants to make the dye with.

This skein is 150 yards, and is quite soft and nice. I'm very pleased with the end result. I did have a little of the fiber left over and I'm planning on blending it with whats left over from the second dye.

What is the second dye pot? You'll just have to wait and see.
