Gum Blossom Yarns

Black Wattle

Bright golden wattle flowers are like little pompoms bobbing in the mid-winter breeze. These golden balls hang in bunches among soft silver-green leaves contrasted by the charcoal-black tree bark.
This skein is a tricolour dip of unmordanted (untreated) wattle flowers, copper (green) and iron (dark charcoal) mordants that correlate with the botanical colours of these Acacia natives in the Queensland winter. 
[The green and gold floral emblem of Australia - our Olympic colours!]
