In addition to the threads, The Occassional Purl also dyed two color packs of cotton fabric and embroidery floss for two lucky winners of this blog post.
The reds are hand-dyed with Cochineal, Rose Madder, and Brazil Wood:
The yellows are hand dyed with Chamomile, Onion Skin, and Cutch:
Which do you like better? I'm a red girl myself, but I love that rich Onion skin color.
As you can tell by my background for this photoshoot, I'm not one for muted colors, but I love the way these naturally dyed colors combine with brighter colors, adding contrast. To enter to win one of these two packs, leave a comment below telling about how you would use them. I'll pick two winners next Monday, May 6th. Good luck!
