marigold dyeing

I did a little marigold dyeing this weekend and this is the result. The wool that I dyed was white, as shown on the far left, and became the exact color of mustard after dyeing it with marigolds. I also dyed a small loop of ecru cotton embroidery floss and it turned out a pretty lemon yellow. Pretty cool huh? The fabric has retained the slightest hint of flower smell, but far less than I antcipated. (which is good)
