Welcome to the final module of Living Colour. Here we will take a step sideways, to explore the delights of eco-printing on wool and how to combine this with shibori dyeing techniques.
Since wool can not stand in water with soda, I will ask you, if there is another way, that I can prepare a new wool sweater, and make it ready for print.
Maybe I should just wash it before, and then try.
Best regards Anne
Hi Anne, yes often I find that it is sufficient to give wool a gentle wash with a wool detergent. Otherwise, here are some scouring instructions for wool and silk: http://maiwahandprints.blogspot.com/2010/12/natural-dyes-scouring.html
