I again used 200 grams or 7 ounces of yarn. To mordant, I simmered it for about 2 hours with 20 grams of Alum and 10 grams of Cream of Tartar. While the yarn was set to mordant, I had the carrot tops in another crock simmering their little green tops out while in a mesh bag.
Once the yarn was finished in the mordant, it was rinsed and then added to the crock with the simmering carrot tops. This pot was simmered for about 3-4 hours to ensure the natural dyes were well and absorbed. This time, I did not let it sit over night.
I am very happy with this pretty little pale yellow yarn that resulted from my second attempt at natural dying. It is much, MUCH prettier than the grey from Monday's post;)
