Plant/Non Human Collaborator: Rosemary

Forager/Dyer/Human Collaborator: Cydni Carter Lopez

Color/Fiber: Warm Yellow on Linen mordanted with Alum Acetate

Date Foraged: July 27 2020

Location Foraged: NE 16th & Glisan, Portland

Dye Method: Stove Top

Recipe: Rosemary grows so well in Portland that I feel like it is almost on every corner. This bush was bigger than a cow, maybe the size of two cows. I clipped half a basket full (also was harvesting Black Eye Susans) and dyed about 50 grams. A bright and vibrant dye with the added bonus of a dye pot that smells amazing.
