Above is the wool I started with and almost forgot to take a picture as the wool was being pushed in the pot to soak. But at the last minute added another small piece of wool which you will see further down. There was a little over 1 1/2 yards of wool in the pot soaking.
There is no need for a mordant with black walnuts as it will dye EVERYTHING. I rinsed the wool numerous times until the squeezed wool water came out clear. Then put the wet wool in my washer to spin out whatever moisture remained.Today's results are hanging on the line but tho dry still put them in the dryer with two fluffy towels (used only for wool projects) to fluff up on low.
Above is a before and after walnut dyeing today. And yes.......
Take advantage of the black walnuts while they are falling. Happy Sunday and happy hooking. Weather is about to change.
