Natural dyeing

My son Chris and his girl friend Emily took a natural dye workshop while visiting Mexico this winter. The pictures were taken at a rug weaving studio in Tlacolula Oaxaca Mexico.
Some of the dyes used are cochineal, pomegranate (skin and flesh), bark, tea, and guajillo; they used limestone to change the colors.

Hand woven dish towels

I finished my first pair of dish towels and am very happy with how they turned out; I will be keeping this set for myself.
Time to warp the loom again, trying to decide if I want to make more towels or place mats.
