One pair of Husband's 100% wool cross-country ski socks, forty years olds…yes, forty. (I am not the only one with a Stash…)
One day in the winter with only left-over dried eucalyptus to print with:
Wool socks bundled over debarked wood and simmered in left-over dye bath (dried coreopsis, tagetes and euc leaves) for a couple of hours:
The results with Eucalyptus globulus: One side of the bundle:
Note the heel area and the colour obtained there:
Red on the upper sock where it came in contact with the heel in the rolled bundle:
So now, will Husband wear these? The answer is YES, he will. They look like the skin of some exotic animal!
But will I let him? If NO, only because I have other ideas than feet-covers for the fate these lovelies
