Can you believe that the eucalyptus plant dyes wool this rust color?

One more thing Judith told me? You techies will love this. The idea for a computer, originally came from a loom.  Cool!

    Great post! Judith is such an interesting and talented woman. Would love to take her class sometime.

    Wished I lived closer! Any chance you have a dye recipe for wool using goldenseal? Wondering if I should use alum mordant and a afterbath with vinegar in it? I’ve done some natural dying but unable to find much about goldenseal. Many thanks

  3. Martha, Let me reach out to Judith and see if she can help you. Want to email me directly at JonahH (at) Lewisginter.org We’ll do our best to help.
