Dying to Dye :)
Once the bug is in you, dyeing seems to be quite addictive. The pink fabric is a worn silk pyjama which I retained from a visiting friend who was preparing to throw away! I was going to recycle it into a silk yarn but decided to use it in my new medley; the cotton muslin and the silk duet. Adding a bit of cotton and silk thread into this khaki adventure was a very good idea :)
I love the "trial & error" trip ... While still in dye solution, I observed that the silk pyjama had a different hue to khaki which led me to think that it must have been due to the "pink" factor! However, once they all were rinsed and dried, I now know that it is due to the "cotton versus silk" factor!
They all were in the same bath but silk had a different variation of the colour than the cotton. Most likely one being a plant fibre and the other being an animal fibre!
As to what I may end up doing with this crowd, is still unknown!
