Description

A rack of naturally-dyed wool showing the range of colours that Viking Age clothes could have come in. The Vikings are known to have liked colourful clothes, and this photographs demonstrates what could be achieved with the technology they had.

The yarn was produced by Elin Sonja Petersen, who used natural plants, mushrooms, lichen, bark, leaves, flowers and bugs to dye the wool. The mordant used is only alum or iron, i.e. a piece of iron.
