Kilims: Earthy Orange

Here is a wonderful earthy orange color. It is called "Sweet Potato Pie". It is yet another color by Susan Quicksall from her dye book Dying for Color.  Check out her website here. This piece was dyed using Prochem dyes over 1/2 yard of Dorr natural in a Presto Pot (also called Kitchen Kettle) with only enough water to cover the wool with little to NO stirring. Check out the interesting variation in value. This is a really great color for a Kilim or your next project. I have dyed this over many different colors and textures and it is very nice. Click on the photo to see the interesting tones in this lovely earthy orange.

  1. Sweet Potato Pie, must be a combination of colors? It is so rich looking! Great color and a must for any stash! Thanks Tony! Cathy G
