Felting, eco printing and notice of a competition!

I’ve been having a wonderful time at Clasheen these last few days, felting like crazy and then firing up the pot for my first eco printing session here since the beginning of April. It’s like a mini jungle outside at present, lucky then that many plants others consider ‘weeds’ give wonderful colour and interesting prints! Here’s a pictorial review of the dress I felted then printed with wild blackberry leaves (brambles), further down this post is an opportunity to win one of my eco printed wraps!

Using a Palm wash board to full the dress

Still wet but ready to print

I love the unbundling process!

Round neck to the back

And now for that competition, can you guess the vegetation I used for these prints???

Older leaves give more golden prints

  1. Hi Nicola!

    I’m sorry I’m no longer on facebook, so I can’t leave a comment there. But I think those leaves look like Dock leaves to me! I tried them once and was surprised that I got a subtle yellow-green print from them once.

    Still enjoying the wonderful things you make!! 🙂

    Best wishes,

    Marion Leibl
