Rubia Weld

rubia masterpiece 3
I had the immense good fortune this week of winning a stunning giveaway done by the fantastically talented Julie from Rubia Weld.

Her naturally dyed scarf is a true masterpiece, and I cannot believe it is now mine.

Julie created this beauty using the solar bundling technique, which you can read all about here.

She layered hyacinth, tulip, ranunculus and peony petals, along with onion skins, osage and madder onto fabric, bundled it up and let it sit in the sun. The results are like a Spring dream.

To purchase your own, please visit Julie's lovely shop. In addition to summer-perfect scarves (the indigo ones are particularly beautiful), she has enticing yarn also naturally dyed with plants.

It's quite serendipitous that I won this, as I have been absolutely obsessed with natural dyeing lately (I still have to show you the results from my class, don't I?), which is how I found Julie's blog.

There are so many wonderful people doing stunning dyeing out there, it's hard not to be inspired. Some of my favourites include Julie of course, Sonia, Eva, and Margie. I want to grow up to be just like them!
