A fabulous scarf

Hi all

Jane Deane is an adult tutor and one of the subjects she teaches is natural dyeing. She has been using the dyes at her evening class in Devon.

This fabulous silk scarf was dyed by one of Jane's student (adult learners!), Sue Golding-Cooke and was photographed for us by Welmoed Perrin.

The reddy/purple is a mix of madder and purple lac and the green is cutch waste.

I'm sure you'll agree that it is truly gorgeous!

Pure Tinctoria has four new dyes for the Spring! Cutch Waste, Chaste Tree, Lodhra Bark and Marigold. We have put them in a pack for the spring with a £1 discount until the end of June.

This picture doesn't do the colours justice! The cutch waste is a lovely colour, giving a fabulous olive green or grey, depending on your water's ph, and the marigold is a lovely lemon yellow.

We will be at Woolfest again this year so come and look us up and see the discounts that we will have for you, including the above "Spring Four" pack.

We look forward to meeting you there.
