J and I have recently been collecting some early Bog Myrtle [aka Sweet Gale] leaves from the Eiseabhal common grazings just up the lane – there are vast areas of it there. I’ve been in the dyeshed making some colour. The samples show the colours achieved with different mordants stated by each sample.
The skein that’s peach coloured was the Bog Myrtle over Alum, overdyed with a pinch of cochineal. Nice, eh?
