Farverigt garn med indigo/Colourful yarn with indigo

Lidt billeder fra min seneste indigofarvning (billeder af det blå garn fra denne postet d. 16.januar). Ud over det blå jeg har vist i den post, farvede jeg også på lidt garn, jeg havde liggende, i forskellige nuancer.

Birkeblade (2.farvning i samme farvebad) og indigo (picture1):

Krap plus indigo (picture2):

Meget blegt indigofarvet garn plus krap (2.farvning på samme farvebad), (picture3): Dette er fra en anden farvning, men jeg har ikke fået lagt billeder ud af det før nu. Det er birkeblade plus krap, det mørkere var længere tid i krapfarvebadet (picture4):


In English:
Some pictures from my latest indigo dyeing (pictures of the blue yarn from that dyeing postet 16 Jan). I also dyed some already (plant)dyed yarn, I had lying around, in different colours.
Picture1: Birch leaves (2.dyeing in the same dye) and indigo.
Picture2: Madder and indigo
Picture3: Very pale indigo (2 nuances) and madder (2.dyeing in the same dye)
Picture4: This is from another dyeing, but I haven't got around to post pictures of it before now. It is birch leaves and madder. The darker was in the madder dye for at longer time.

Saga, your colors are great! I really like the blue-green of the birch leaves and indigo.

What kind of indigo do you use? Is it the instant indigo, or do you use a fermentation vat, or the chemicals?

Thank you.
I use the "chemical method". I'd like to start learning the fermentation vat method, it's the master technique of plant dyeing, but I can't where I live :(
