Logwood
I dyed this yarn using Logwood to achieve this intriguing rich royal purple. Logwood purple is a rich and deep shade, and is also extremely colourfast. The colour varies gently through the skein so your project will have a nice hand-dyed look to it. The process of dyeing naturally takes time, but requires no nasty chemicals, and the colours are always easy on the eye. Typically plant-dyeing takes about 3-4 days, starting with scouring (cleaning), mordanting twice(preparing the fibre to help it accept the dye better) with natural mordants like oak tannin, mayrobalan, and alum. Then finally a 'tea' is made with the plant used for dyeing, and the yarn is added for a day or two.
