Kilims: Welcome to the Dark

Here is a delicious dark greenish brown. It is called "Compost". 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. Click on the photo to see the interesting tones in this dark brown. Check out the lovely variation in value. This is a really great dark color for a Kilim or other project.

  1. I just LOVE the colors you are achieving. I've emailed Quicksall to see if she would sell the book w/o the swatches. Our water is SO hard, I don't feel our colors will be quite the same. I'm a newbie, so I'm totally "in the dark"!
