Coreopsis and Gulf Coast Native Sheep
pot of coreopsis
fleece soaking in dyepot
Not wanting to lose the opportunity to dye more luscious orange wool, I cooked a half-pot of chopped up coreopsis and a half-pound or so of Gulf Coast fleece. The fleece had an alum/COT mordant. This time, the dye seemed yellower, so I left it overnight. The result? Really bright orange! Great stuff!
