Trying to Dye with Birch

I attempted to dye my Coopworth with some birch bark, as described in Jenny Dean’s Wild Color book.  It didn’t work.  All I got was little pieces of bark stuck in my wool.  It was supposed to dye a reddish color, so I added a bit of some kind of red dye that I bought, so now it’s a little red.  Very disappointed.

  1. I tried an indigo vat last year with similar sad results. Doesn’t it just make you cranky!
