Sun and Colour

One of the problems with taking photos of dyed silks is that the colours do not come true, often appearing much darker on the photograph, but the following are fairly close.

Moss feeling hot on the terrace

Untidy Ashford loom with the early morning sun on recently dyed silk

The five colours - silver is natural 50% alpaca/50% silk; Next comes cream, one in weak henna, the next in henna with dash of chestnut; Greens are chartreuse, the other dash of chartreuse with chestnut.
