Cedar Bark dyeing

I love natural dyeing. The colors always seem to amaze me because you never know what you are going to get from leaves, roots, or in this case, bark.

On the right is the original Merino fleece that I used. I think that I would have got a better, darker color from the cedar bark if I would have scoured (cleaned) the fleece first. I have lots of cedar bark left so I will definitely try it again.

I love the colour! Are you using a mordant?
