Cranberry Dyeing

Mission: Cranberry dyeing !

Dear All, After a successful try with Red Cabbage dyeing, I decided to make some experiment with expired Cranberry juice. Dyeing with fruits or vegetable juices is actually very easy. I soaked 5 balls of white wool in a tupperware, into 2 litres of cranberry juice and 2 spoons of Alum, for 5 days. I’ve been…
