plant dye

a few recent plant dyeing experiments.

purple/violet – avocado kernels with iron mordant (iron (II) acetate (basically rust in vinegar) on linen fabric and cotton embroidery floss

pink – avocado kernel on linen and cotton embroidery floss

dark brown – walnut husks on linen fabric and cotton embroidery floss

lighter brown – yellow onion skins with iron mordant on linen fabric and cotton embroidery floss

yellow – two different batches of tagetes flowers, collected in january (dried out, frozen over a few times, still on the stalks, and they still had so much colour!) on vintage handkerchiefs (cotton and linen/cotton), linen fabric, cotton embroidery floss and cotton sashiko thread
