Kilims: Reds Are Here Again

Can you believe it - yet another Red? Well, as you know traditional Oriental colors are red, blue and yellow - the three primary colors. This Red is called Stagecoach. It is a wonderful rich red from Sharon Townsend's dye book "SPNEA'S Historic Colors of America" using Prochem dyes. This piece of wool is 1/2 yard of Dorr natural processed in a Presto Pot with only enough water to cover the wool with little to NO stirring. My mordant is always Citric Acid. Click on the photo to see the loveliness and merriment in value and depth. Another great Red for Kilims. Try it, you'll like it!
