Let’s revisit the madder root. The photo above shows the nice dark tomato red I got from the large madder roots. The left two are from the big roots, the right two are from the smaller roots. I can see why one should be patient and let the madder root grow for at least 3 years. This crop was right at 3 years old. I dug a 4 foot by 4 foot area and separated the roots. I still have some madder exhaust on hand to use with some wool.
A nice contrast color for the persimmon, oak, acorn and weld yellows and browns. Almost time to weave…..
