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.
