Fahle Farben

A nice, slightly oldfashioned word in
German for the colour shades I prefer is "fahl"
(wan?, sallow??)
In a scene of Bertolt Brecht`s "Baal" the sky
is "aprikosenfahl", I always liked that...

Here´s another dye result in a pleasant pinkish
Fahlheit...
























And a cloth creature/doll of a new design
(with pastel painted face) dressed in it...

Love your doll and the very subtle palest pink. Very beautiful. I can see why you love it!

I have been dyeing with pyrocanthus berries this week which have also resulted in a pink (more of a deeper rose pink than yours, but also pretty) will post at the weekend

Have a great week :o)

Fahlheit... I like that! Wonder if there's a word for it in Czech...
Your fabrics look very poetic too :)

Your colors are so restful...and her little face is precious.

Thank you... the world as it is can certainly benefit from an extra quantum Fahlheit, I suppose... :)

aprikosenfahl perfectly describes the colour of my grandmother's favourite silk bloomers...
and the next best ones were a shade called 'ashes of roses'

The doll has grey hair, did you notice...? She´s a little girl-grandmother transmutant... - I wont tell you about her bloomers, though... (ashes of roses, hmmm...)

Your work is new to me and very very beautiful. I love these dolls. Do you sell them anywhere?
