Multicolored yarns Monivärilankoja

Olen kokeillut, millaisia tulisi monella värillä värjätyistä langoista. Nämä ovat vasta harjoittelua, että löytyisi yhteensopivat värit. Ylemmästä tuli mielestäni aika kiva, siinä on ensin värjätty krapilla ja sitten paatsamankuorilla, sitomalla osa vyyhdistä niin, että väri ei tunkeudu joka kohtaan. Krappi toimii aika kivasti näin, alapuolella on kokeilu jossa pohjana oli indigo sininen, sitten paatsamankuorta ja kokenillia ja nyt kokenilli dominoi mielestäni liikaa (ehkä liian vahva liemi), mutta muuten ok.

Yläkuvan lankoja on neljä n 100g vyyhtiä ja ne maksavat 13€/100g, alemman kuvan langat ovat sukkalankaa (jota tietysti voi käyttää muuhunkin) ja ne ovat 140g kokoisia, niitä on vain nuo kaksi eri sävyistä vyyhtiä. Hinta sama 13€/100g eli 17,20€ vyyhti. Nämä tulevat huomenna torille mukaan.

I have been trying to dye multicolored yarns. The first one on the top came out pretty well, I think. It is dyed first with madder and then with buckthorn bark and I have tied parts of the skein so that the dye doesn't penetrate everywhere. Madder seems to work fine this way, but the cochineal in the bottom picture was too dominant color, the solution was propably too strong. I had dyed the bottom yarns first blue with indigo and yellow(=green) with buckthorn bark, but the color of cochineal covered most of the green.
I have four about 100grams skeins the orange multicolor yarns, they are 13€/100grams and the yarns in the bottom picture are sockyarn (though you can knit anything else from them, too) and they are 140grams each (only those two skeins) and the price is same 13€/100grams, for 140grams it is 17,20€. I am going to take these to the market tomorrow.

  1. Molemmat ovat todella kauniita värisävyjä, ja upeasti värit vaihtelevat!

  5. Hi Ineke,
    yes, my husband is most likely at the market next Saturday (Feb 2nd) and there are small skeins also. The weather forecast was not looking very good, if there is storm and rain, then there'll be no sellers, but hopefully now it looks like the storm will pass before Saturday.

    Cedar, hi!
    I am just practicing with the multicolored yarns. I have tied them with plastic string (left from old hay bales), but I need more experiments with it.

  6. I really like the multicoloured yarns. I will have to save my plastic strings from hay instead of throwing them out to experiment.
