These two were dyed using Logwood extract. I didn't leave these in as long as recommended because I like the color where it was! I also dyed some wool some with the shorter dye bath and some overnight. The overnight turned very dark purple. I've used the same heavy duty blue gloves for four years the logwood became permanent where all the other dyes didn't. Even when the wool was rinsed till clear it left purple halos on my drying frames. Really different than I expected.

Oddball one on the loom it is now blue!
Finished weaving the lace project on to dyeing. The first one I dyed using the traditional method with string wrapped around the pole then slid down. Dyed the first one Blue with Fiber Reactive dyes no heat used at all. 2nd one is batching it is very yellow. I may end up over dyeing it with a darker color. Used Rubber bands for the resist for the second one, a lot easier on my hands!
It turned out just the way I had envisioned it! Nice when that happens.
