My sister is into the fiber arts. She spins wool into yarn, weaves, knits, dyes cloth.

She invites friends and members of her guild over for to try different fiber techniques. We did eco dying, which is form of dying cloth using tannin and iron to transfer the pigment from plant onto the fabric. The cloth is dipped in tannin water. Plant material is laid on the cloth. A cover cloth is dipped in iron water and everything. Everything is then rolled up tightly over a dowel and tied. Then steamed for 1 1/2 hrs.

The plants are used were gathered from my garden.

I used a white silk chiffon scarf. The images the plants believe look like the scarf was painted with watercolors
