Onion skin dyed yarn

My friend Sally has done a ton of onion skin yarn dying, mostly using the yellow onions. She gets a gorgeous variegated yellow.

I wanted to give it a try with red onion skins. The two colors red onion skins yield are green and brown, according to this website.

Sally helped me through my first yarn dying-I was hoping for the green but got something in between, more of a khaki color.

It was fun and exciting to see what comes out of the pot and I think It will make a nice sweater. Hopefully I can find a great pattern.
