Silk fibres and plain velvets dyed in oranges, pastels, and dull shades to complement the bright ones I bought. I used mulberry silk tops, tussah silk tops and silk noils as well as soya bean fibre.

And these are the ones I bought from Wingham Wool Works, along with all my other irresistible buys.

Dyed and ready for action

The great push begins soon for Art and Garden 2008, and the Platform Gallery Open Textile exhibition
So fabrics are bound and dyed and effects marvelled at.
This was the result of one syringe full of Kemtex dark brown, followed by a syringe full of plain water on silk velvet.

footnote: The Mistress of Longears made a comment on flickr that this looks like a Chrysalis and a butterfly.

I wish I'd thought of that.
