xmas playsilks

i love dyeing playsilks!

they take the colour so wonderfully, and as long as you use complimentary colours you pretty much can't go wrong!

i dyed these with food colouring gels using the low immersion method...
using that method if you delay adding your mordant (in this case vinegar) the colours split into pretty rainbows..

the kids got these to share for xmas :-)

Ooooh...thanks for this. I found a few of ours yesterday but didn't want to use Koolaid this time. Those are pretty delicate colours - just what I want!
