Docken flowers/seeds (not sure what they are actually - the red bits on the plant anyway) this time. The stewed vegetable matter looked like diluted Ribena so I had hopes of maybe getting a pinkier colour this time.
Alas, once the yarn was done it looked pretty much like wholemeal spaghetti hanging on my washing-line. The folk over the back must think I'm a bit odd..
This is the end result with my previous two attempts - from top: onion skins (mordanted with alum), 2nd try onion skins (unmordanted), docken bits (mordanted with alum).
It's hard to see but there's actually more variety of colour in this skein than in the other two - hints of green and pink pop up now and then. So I'm quite pleased with this experiment - and it does look nice with the other two colours!
