Mother Earth's Colours

I got some walnuts from a friend, so I made a nice walnut soup for my sock yarn. The funny thing was that it smelled like paint. No mordant needed, too. Just walnuts and water. I love it because it all comes from Mother Earth.

The yarn got a nice warm brown colour. I dip dyed it. Later I put a can in the soup and that gave a grey brown colour.  It's just magic.
