I have no idea what fibre this is, except for the silk yarn I used for the crochet trim, so the result could be interesting! Thinking of using Tasmanian blackwood leaves in the dyepot; I also collected blackberry, eucalyptus (2 types) and Tasmanian dogwood leaves this afternoon for the eco printing.

I use silk yarn to tie my bundles when I’m eco dyeing. This means I end up with a beautiful by-product that is also useful! The first of a series of silk crochet brooches.
