The dozen skeins of golden brown silk thread hung out in the sun every morning in front of the house attracts a lot of attention. They seem to be absorbing the sun and toasting slowly as the weeks go by. The color, shine and crispness is like cinnamon toast and a drawer of warm socks from the dryer.
It is impossible to get an even dye on skeins of thread with persimmon dye. I dyed the 140 cm skeins 6 times and then re-skeined them to 110 centimeters effectively scattering the light spots that were resisted from the sun's rays by the protective threads.
