Oak Gall 100% wog


The dark spots happened when I splattered tiny drops of the iron afterbath on some of the skeins. I doubt oak gall was used to make browns in period, but it's an appropriate (if controversial) way to dye black. In a different project, I made a wonderful, dark charcoal gray/black this way.
