I took this photo of the privet berry dye samples a while ago and then forgot to share them. Here they are! These berries were picked in Nakusp and given to me by a participant in one of my workshops - so sweet of Chris to do this for me. I made these samples a few days before Christmas. They make a very lovely teal blue with alum mordant and iron post mordant - I posted a couple of scarves dyed like this earlier. I also like the soy mordant with vinegar. #kootenays #naturaldyes #privetberries #botanicaldyes #textileartist #fiberartist #fiberstudio #dyesamples
