Rosemary dyed: same dye, different mordants

The same yarn and dye were used on these two samples of five yarns each. As mentioned in the caption, one group was dyed with coffee, the other with rosemary. The only difference between them are the five different mordants. (More on mordants here.)

More to come on my natural dyeing experiments, after I return home.

My second contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Thank you, Cee!
