Peppermint Dye

I was reading on one of the natural dye forums on Ravelry and someone shared this absolute gorgeous yarn dyed with fresh peppermint leaves. It was a dk bronze green. Sadly I did not get such a lovely result.


The result isn't bad. It's kind of a warm tan. Unless I change my mind it's destined for an overdye in the future.

175 grams of dye stuff including the stems. Simmered for 30 minutes then steeped for about 4 plus hours. Simmered again for one hour and steeped over night.

4oz premordant (2T Alum and CoT assist) fiber dyed in crockpot with dye liquor for 1 hour.
