...shades of Gold...

I discovered something this week:

I really, really love to dye fibers with plants !

But I knew that already

of course I did ...

some lace merino and silk-alpaca dyed with Marigolds (Calendula officinalis) , using the fermentation method

In dutch this herb is called goudsbloem - gold flower -

And the colour is exactly that: the most exquisite light apricot gold !

The actual shade is difficult to capture with a camera but you get the idea
