This little collage was tucked away in a corner at A Tangled Skein. Each plant shown was used to dye a bit of the wool in the weaving in the center. There’s nothing to explain where it came from (I shall have to ask Cheryl, the owner of the shop), but there is what looks like transliterations into a Native American language under the English versions of the plant names. It’s fascinating to see that something green like lichen produces an orange colored dye. Someday, perhaps I’ll grow a dyers garden, but probably not in Alaska!
