Kilims: Unusual Red
"Hearth Stone". It is yet another color by Susan Quicksall from her dye book Dying for Color. Check out her website here. Can you tell I am a HUGE fan of her colors??? Anyway, 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. There are some lovely variations in value. This is a really great color for a Kilim or for your next project. Click on the photo to see this wonderfully unusual red.
