From top to bottom, the braids were dyed with purple basil, which yielded a light lavender color, in the middle braid the dye pot contained zinnias, marigold, dahlia and goldenrod, which gave a deep golden yellow, and the bottom braid in the photo was dyed with both purple basil and marigolds, and I love the brilliant yellow that came out in this one.
I experimented with a recipe for dyeing with pokeberry and vinegar, and it's drying out on my rack as I write this.
