You may remember this dye jar that I started a couple of months ago. I let it sit for several weeks while I was working on Saprobia, to allow the pigments to really soak in. It's funny how with pretty much every solar dyeing experience I've had, the outcome was not at all what I expected. This is not a bad thing - I don't really go into it with a vivid idea of the end result, but the color of the yarn is rarely in alignment with the color of the dye solution. I had anticipated a pale red from the sumac berries, but what I ended up with was more of a light peachy tan. Next year I will try some different mordants and see what comes of it. Have you dyed with sumac before? How did yours turn out? I need to start coming up with projects to know with all of these naturally dyed skeins!
