Back to black walnut dye – after boiling the walnuts for a few hours and letting them sit over night, pour the concentrated dye into a bucket, this will be our darkest dye. Pour more water over the walnuts and boil again.

A huge pot of Black Walnuts we harvested to make a gorgeous brown/black dye. I will cover them with water and simmer them for a few hours to make a concentrated dye that I can dilute to dye tons of fiber. More of this process coming soon!

Another creation from my newest warp – raw silk ikat shawl with Chilkat woven details – we had too much fun photographing at White Sands –
