Natural Dying: Wool

In our class, we were assigned to dye wool with natural dye. The ingredients I used for the wool were onion skins, chokeberry, and blueberry. During the dye process, I was able to see the difference in the wool after an hour but after picking up the wool, the dye started to fade away. I realized that applying alum to the wool made a huge difference in the colour. The yellow wool was dyed in onion skins, the lighter pink was dyed in blueberry, and the purple was dyed in the chokeberry.
