Dyed roving and felt
What plant might it be? Eucalyptus! Some eucalyptus (you know, that gray-green tree) are only
marginally hardy where I live, but I love them and keep planting them. The last one came down in a
storm, and I saved the leaves for a friend who is very skilled in natural dyes. She boiled the leaves
(very aromatic) outdoors, let the dye pot sit overnight, boiled it again, added the wool and soaked it
until we had achieved the intense color above. Who'd a thunk it?
