blackberries

Blackberry time! Not in the garden, but my freezer is still brimming with the pickings from last year and I need to make space...

The photo above is the most accurate for the colour, and pictured next to the apple leaf and birch skeins.

The details

200g of frozen blackberries, covered with water and boiled for one hour, left to cool
25g of wool yarn, pre-mordanted with alum and cream of tartar

This seems like far too many blackberries to yarn - but they were kind of stuck together in the freezer and I figured, um, why not?!
