What’s Drying Wednesday — Contact Print On Silk

Two of these silk scarf bundles have already been opened and need to be washed (Tuesday got away from me). I saved one bundle to open this weekend. On Saturday, I’ll be doing a lecture in Milwaukee for Wisconsin Handweavers on Willow For Color. (and also other dye plant materials you can grow or gather in the Upper Midwest).

Contact prints simmered in willow leaf dye by Donna Kallner.

These were simmered in a dyebath made from willow leaves I froze last year. Time to start thinking about getting the freezer cleaned out.
