Here is about 20 pounds of the wild stuff, Spirit Bro' Chris brought me this from Wyoming. I hear tell that his wife was really happy to get rid of the stuff as she is very allergic. I made a bang up greenish color with it in an old iron pot at Beaver Creek '06.
My vat is now fermenting away outside, I'll have to bring it in before it freezes so the pot won't crack. Sage doesn't get that slimy smell to it, it's one of it's better qualities. The yarn would be darker if the sage had been allowed to sit in the pot for several days, instead this is the color you get after a few hours.
