bad woad skein

I used to really hate variegated embroidery threads, and when I first started doing natural dyes I would have been horrified by a skien of woad that went as badly wrong as this one.
now I just save them for the sea

Or it could be a herd of nessies?

  1. They look like garden eels!

  2. The effect created by the “bad woad” is truly beautiful. The only problem I see is you probably couldn’t duplicate the colors a seocnd time.

  3. I think it’s a gorgeous effect. And I love the idea of a herd of Nessies!

  4. Or a clutch of mermaids!
