Bean dyeing

No, not a typo lol; this latest skein is dyed with Black Turtle beans, just bought in a supermarket. The resulting colour is an exquisite shade of duck egg blue, matching the Runner duck eggs in my egg bowl.

It looks particularly stunning against the onion skin dyed skein I did last week:

I think any project I decide to do with them will have the two colours in. There is a big pan of fresh nettles and wool on the go as I type , for the next instalment :)
