The Color of Onion

Exactly, the skin of onion can produce a nice color.
That's my favorite.

On the weekind, I enjoyed dying raw wool/silk and silk yarn.

First, I boil the dried onion skin in boilng water.

Second, dip the material in the strained liquid.

Then, by way of mordanting and washing, I dry it.

Don't you think that's successful ?


  1. I'm surprised!!!
    Onion color can be so beautiful yellow!!!
    Does it smell onion??

  2. Dear J-Yoshiko:

    Yeah, it's clear yellow and sometimes close to
    mastard. I love it.
    But !!!!!!!!
    The smell, which filles my kitchen,
    is terrible, far from that of onion itself. www
