These are the 1 gram samples of silk that I dyed. I'm not mad keen on any of them to be frank and I think that I should try again with a darker depth of shade.
The dusky, dusty, more muted colours are what I prefer and maybe there are some greens and mauves that I could use here but I'm not sure.
Next time I shall probably do the 66- sample exercise in Ann Milner's book, which are all at the same depth of shade and use three colours in the mix.
I think I shall finish my rug first though, as dyeing really is an awfully big adventure.
