Direct dyeing

It has taken me a little while to get to grips with, but I have finally found I rather like direct dyeing. My first samples came out a rather violent orange, but with practice I am now able to create a more subtle range. As I feel I have been working almost exclusively with the oranges and blue in my colour stripe up until this point, I have dyed some fabrics in some of the browns and beiges in my stripe (see below) and since then gone back to combine the two in a dip dye format - ie. orange to brown.
