I have some lovely Lincoln locks from Feederbrook Farm that just cried out for the sun.
I filled the jars with locks, then sprinkled the dry Jacquard dyes on top, then poured the mixture of hot water and citric acid crystals carefully over, filling up the jar. Put the lid on and waited. Three jars have grey fleece, one has white.
The sun is still shining - the heat is still on. I will be doing more of this. Great fun!

Smith and Ewe Solar Dyeing, Solar Drying
So I was at Ikea and saw these jars. The first thing that came to mind was SOLAR DYEING.
