I was kind of bored this morning (after cleaning the bathroom and the kitchen), so I decided to dye some yarn. I have some natural dye, which is always fun to use. This time I tried Woad, which is crazy. It looks all yellow-green in the dye pot:
But as soon as you take the yarn out of the dye bath and expose it to air, it turns blue:
One skein didn't "take" as much dye as the others, but I'm overall pretty pleased with this little experiment. BTW, Woad has been used as a dye for thousands of years, starting back in the Neolithic Age, so that's a fun fact!
