Looking at the dye samples

One of the joys of natural dyeing is the unpredictability of the results. It's about

the only ironing job I like - ironing the dyed pieces after they have been rinsed and dried.

You can see the shibori indigo piece  in more detail below, a few lines of stitches were done on the machine with a long stitch setting before I drew up the threads tightly and put the piece in the indigo vat..
