Normant vs Jomsvikingr.
You reminded me to obtain photos I took on the Wolin festival, I haven't done it yet!RagnarGerman said:Normant vs Jomsvikingr.
Back to the topic, there was a lecture about dying textiles in early medieval I attended on the Wolin festival. The lecturer confirmed that people in those times liked dying their clothes, and she also told us which plants and other stuff were used for such purposes. She said that early medieval dyers were able to obtain literally every color but red (they could get some reddish orange and pink, though). She also mentioned dying wool is much easier than dying linen.vtz said:Wow, that's great! Very informative video, thanks for posting it here.
From what I can see, some common stuff is used to paint the meterial in red. And I thought that this color was very hard to obtain back then
