Natural Plant Dyes: Alfalfa




Alfalfa, it's prolific in our fields right now and I thought it would make a fun dye experiment.  The neighboring farmer is going to hay our field any day now, so I wanted to harvest a basket full before it's gone.

I'll use my basic dye recipe here, though I may try mordanting with iron, too.  Maybe alum, who knows?  Really, it all depends on what I can find among the moving boxes.

I'll show you results just as soon as it's finished.
