rhubarb, i love it!

This title is my little daughter's favourite phrase just now. She likes to tell me she loves everything. 'Rhubarb, I love it! Cook it! Yum yum tummy.' She is yet to learn about it's dye properties...

So happy with this! A lesson was learnt though - I should have trusted the maths a bit more. I ended up with a bit of a liquor as a dye bath, way more than I needed for my little 50g skein of wool.

Next time I might try a mordant and the root only so see what difference it makes to the colour.

The details:

50g wool, no mordant
just below a simmer in the dyebath for one hour
left to cool overnight in the dyebath and rinsed
