For those of you experienced in plant dyeing, this is nothing new, but I thought I’d post an image of mordanted yarns to show the colours you can achieve from that alone. It’s not a complete collection, no iron mordant for instance, just what I happened to have on hand today. 😉 And an unmordanted skein on the right.
I’ll return to my semi-regular schedule probably, when I’m done ruminating over having to put my 3 y.o. cat to sleep yesterday. And I’ve just now realised I don’t really have much in the way of photos…. 🙁

Condolences about the loss of Dalton. They change us forever, our kitties.
so sorry about Dalton. take your time and mourn you buddy – we’ll be here when you are ready again.
ps love seeing the pictures of what the mordant does.
Losing him at such a young age is tough. Experience and process your feelings. The blogoverse will still be here.
By the way I had no idea that mordant would change the colour of fabric like that.
Q – My condolences on loosing your beloved cat. Not easy.
The mordant yarns are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Tough having to have a kitty put to sleep — especially when so young. My condolences. Good to give yourself some time to mourn.
So sorry about your pussy cat. What a shame. You will miss her/him.
Sorry, Pia. 🙁 Hugs from across the ocean.
Sorry to hear you’ve lost one of your treasures.
oh Pia, so sorry to read you have lost Dalton, take care, Frances x
Q – You are more like family than just a link to a blog so we’ve nominated your for a WordPress Family Award.
That is such a lovely thought and one that really resonates with me. And even internet communities are sometimes much closer and genuine than your local one! I truly appreciate the interaction I have via blogs and fora, I feel that I know some of you quite well and find myself wondering when someone stops posting for a while.
Q – I feel the same way, I always hope they are somewhere having a wonderful adventure.
I so totally love your site.
Thank you everyone for your warm thoughts. 🙂
So sorry to read about your cat. He is a cutie. So hard to lose a friend.
Thanks. I do miss his fat bellywag leading the way on our routine evening hay delivery in the horse paddock and good morning cuddles.
