Starting Ayelet’s Tallit


Getting a package of silk in the mail is always a treat. This batch of silk is for Ayalet’s tallit. I love the colors, actually let me amend that. Ayelet had asked for a bright lime green. What arrived is alarmingly quiet. It remind me of the walls of a hospital in the 1950’s. I may have to over dye what got sent to me. The orange metallic was a surprise, a delightful one. I can’t wait to get started.


  1. Wow! Those are BEAUTIFUL fabrics! I particularly love the scarlet and fuchsia you have juxtaposed. If the lime green isn't bright enough, you might just try using Kool-Aid to overdye the green. I used it on a white silk, simmering it until the color was depleted from the dyepot, and I'm really happy with the shade of lime I got. I fused it to some interfacing, and haven't used it yet, but this year, for sure!

  2. I have never had luck with Kool-Aid dyeing. how do you do it???
