This was meant to be "Grello". It began as six skeins of something called "Flamme", which I dug out of a box at Bargain Bill's in Chippewa Falls, WI. The label says "Made in Turkey" and "75% Cotton 17% Acrylic 8% Polyamide" and "Color 05". It does not say "made by X Company".
The colors in this yarn were cream, tan and grey. I wanted the cream to turn into a light yellow, to make a yellow-grey for working up into a lightweight spring/summer sweater. So I soaked the yarn in water-soap-vinegar while I heated water in my canning pot. I dumped in a small spice jar of turmeric and a few glugs of white vingear. When that water was hot, I chucked the six skeins into the pot and stirred. I also tossed a skein of handspun corriedale in, just because.
I had heard that "natural dying" results in not-too-vibrant colors. I had heard that natural dying results in colors that may wash out easily. These things were not true.
Now I have six tangled messes of an atomic-goldyellow-odd green cotton/acrylic/polyamide suitable for ??what?? And a skein of corriedale in :
Flat atomic goldyellow.
Turmeric is serious spice.
