With the recent chatter of people dyeing wool thought I'd pull out my white pot and do more Olde Patina recipe dying. Since I do a lot of antique adaptations that color really speaks to me and gives more credence to an antique looking rug instead of an off white wool.
Below is the wool I stared with. There is a little over a yard total of the 4 pieces and I used 6 Tablespoons of the Olde Patina recipe in the pot. You can get the recipe by clicking the link near the bottom of this post.
Tho I do love off the bolt textures they sometimes present more of a white in my rugs when hooked than I want. Yup, I like the dirty worn look of the rugs from yesteryear.
Since there was only a small amount left from my previous Olde Patina dye day thought it was time to refresh my stash. On the right side is all that is left from the last time I used the Olde Patina recipe.
