amber-onion and pinkish-sorrel

latest colour: botttom right amber goat's wool
simply left in a jar of onion skins and water for 5 days

sorrel-pinks, with shades of mauve
fresh sorrel was chopped, (I used the entire plant minus the roots) just covered in water in the pan,
 a generous teaspoon tartaric acid,  brought to the boil  and left to simmer for appr. half an hour, fabric added and left for 5 days with a couple of rusty bottle caps thrown in, these are responsible for the darker spots
