Dye Day: Marigold

Dye Day: Marigold

I dyed with marigold today.  I had quite a bit (182g)  of marigold and had 266g of Icelandic mordanted with alum.


The dye bath was quite dark after about 1 1/2 hours of heating the marigold bath.  Almost a dark green colour after straining.



I got a really nice saturated yellow though.



I did a second dye bath with the exhaust but didn’t get a picture of that yet.  I am quite happy though with my marigold results.  Also, it is awesome dyeing with locally grown dyes.
