These pieces of silk are about 3 metres long. The left one dyed in red onion and the right one dyed in tibouchina petals
Because this piece is 4 metres long and was wrapped quite tightly around the stick the brown onion dye is more prominent on the outer ends and becomes quit light in the middle. I'm happy to see the patterning is quite evenly balanced on each half.
Brown onion peel on scrunched silk.
Thought I'd try a little bit of Shibori while I was at it. This is marbles tied into a silk scarf. It is dyed in red onion peels but I think I left it simmer too long because it went quite brown instead of the ruby colour that I'd been able to get before on another piece.
