Silk dyed with Rosehips in 2023 was very pale, so I decided to over dye with sage; leaves and twigs from a large autumn picking from my allotment. The first soaked piece (above image) produced a good deep ochre-gold; the second soaked piece produced a paler more yellow ocre. Both colours are subtle and acceptable for adding painted designs over. Currently Celtic Triskele designs, with additions.
