‘Naturally dyed BFL fibre. This was dyed with elderberries which changed colour from pink to green when I added an alkaline modifier.’ – Jeni Reid

  1. Natural dyes and natural wool, a perfect partnership. My experiments with acid dyes on ‘white’ wool give colours which don’t have the depth or subtlety of colour I achieve from natural dyeing my wool. Try an alkaline modifier with blackberry and sloe dyed wool – a strong solution will give you deep greens through to slate greys.
