Plant colour

From eucalyptus bark and leaves, fresh woad leaves, NZ flax, and other plant material I found from around the garden. Some of these were soaked in alcohol to extract the colour. Most I dyed last year. I'm planning a garment. The yarn is all NZ handspun wool with a bit of alpaca. Just have a couple more colours to add to the mix including maybe some natural coloured fleece.
