Brazilwood, copper, blueberries, turmeric, broom, onion skins, madder root, logwood...Summer is such a wonderful time to do natural dyeing...everything dries quickly in the sun and it's a great activity to do outside (if you have the right equipment...camp stove, large pots...).
Here are some of our latest dyeing projects. In our opinion, the best natural dyeing supplies and info. come from Griffin Dyeworks.
We are learning that depending on the weather, the fabric, the water, and the batch of natural dye, colors can vary! For instance, dyeing with frozen blueberries works better for us than fresh blueberries, but sometimes turns more blue/gray than lavender. Very pretty, either way. Brazilwood might turn cotton peach, silk ribbon pink or burgundy, and velvet fuschia!
