A couple of weeks ago, to celebrate their one year store anniversary, Kristine Vejar, the owner, opened up access to her indigo dyeing pots for anyone with a skein of yarn or a bit of fabric to come and use. So generous! And, of course I showed up with a little linen.
|Pots of Indigo. Yes, they smell a bit and live outside.|
|Kristine dyeing my linen. When it first comes out of the vat, it's bright green!|
|Once the dye gets more oxygen, it turns from green to blue.|
And, here's my linen! It turned a beautiful soft French Blue.
Now I just have to figure out how I want to use it! Any ideas?
