…following up on the original dying I did with haskap, here is a comparison of washed fibre (right) against the original, unwashed fibre (left).  i purposefully washed this patch with hot water and Tide detergent to see how badly this would damage the colour.  It did remove the brilliance of the original red and turned it a brown-russet.  Again, this is just a base-line washing with a table salt mordant….fyi…(again, full sun on snow)
