Green for TX Palette - Hill Country Herb Garden :)
The green dye was quite a surprise to me. You make the dye formula by combining halves of the yellow and blue dye formulas. Both of them were fairly vibrant color swatches, so the sage like quality of this set was a delightful surprise. I love mottled wool, as to me, it hooks into a more organic meaning living rather than mechanical rug. These dyes contain acids, I wear gloves and a respirator while processing the strips, so definitely not organic as in pure and unchemical. But the final product is no different from that in a blazer, just that getting it there is a rather time consuming process.
The pale tones will be great for a slight green highlight or for new leaves.
