Latest dye batch

It's definitely greyer than the colour that Linda has proposed, but I might just go with it anyway. I used 2 parts Ultra Violet and 1 part Indigo. Perhaps there's a little black in the Indigo, and it would have been a brighter result if I'd used a different blue. Linda's colour choice is beautiful, but it's tricky to reproduce! I do think my results match the "Victoria" swatch on Linda B's computer-generated palette.


  1. This looks pretty good to me. Really the colour of true lavender flowers which do dry a bit on the grey side.

  2. Maybe start from a turquoisey blue and work back to the light violet tinge in the colour? Or a periwinkle blue with a drop of violet?
