Red Onion Skins & pennies...

This is what I got from red onion skins, copper pennies, vinegar, cream of tartar & alum 'dye soup' on wool. At the end of the simmering time I tossed in some soda ash and that bubbled and fizzed super impressively!  When the chemical reactions ceased and cooled I had to rinse the wool 5 soaking times! Lots of dye in there, so I tossed in a couple PFD chunks of cotton and they are going through the washer/dryer as I type. If the color sticks, it is a fantastic yellow! Will post the results later.
Now to start the bagging and braiding!
