Fabric Dyeing

A couple of months ago I spent the day dyeing some cotton and silk fabric. They have been sitting in my sewing room so I could admire the beautiful colours but I must pack them away.
I used a different colour combination than I have used before and I really like them. I used Procion dyes, Fuchsia Red, Lemon Yellow and Turquoise. I had some dye left over so I added some black to the colours to get a darker version. It is amazing how different the fabrics look with the black added to them.
The fabrics on the top row are the cottons and the fabrics on the bottom row are the silk.
The second photo shows just some of the pots of dye, I had another set as well.
