11.59 oz of frozen Marigold flowers (weighed prior to being frozen) -- My wool weighed around 11 oz
poured (almost) boiling water to steep and mashed with a potato masher to extract color
the Marigold dye
......and the end result.
I followed the usual dye technique for dyeing with Natural Dyes (scour, mordant & dye).
I put a piece of the before sweater fabric to show the contrast in color. It is interesting to note that you obtain different hues when dyeing fresh vs dried Marigold. As one would expect you get lighter vs darker tones.
Now to pick a knitting pattern.......
