Madder and Marigold

A black and white kid mohair fleece blended on the carder, a bouncy white (with some black fibers) Border Leicster cross fleece, bombyx and tussah silk are mordanted with alum then dyed with marigolds and madder. I added some iron to the madder for part of the mohair and silk, the color went from dark rust to maroon.
