Turns out blackberries can do other things besides make delicious treats and be a pain in the garden. I love the nice purple and green that I got with berries and leaves/stems. I used an alum mordant on the yarn before dyeing. What Im learning to love about natural dyeing is that each batch is unique! You never really know what you are going to get even if you try and repeat exactly what you did before. Its a wonderful surprise every time!
