You are an inspiration... I'm wanting to have a go at natural dyeing. I love avocados and rather fancy starting with those.... what else do I need to use to make the cloth fast.I have some natural flax fabric to use...Smiles Cass
Thank you ! You first need to mordant your fabric, and you can use soy milk for that. Have fun !
Lovely colours! Amazing different nuances you can get from those green shells :)Happy (spring) weekend!
Thanks a lot Mona ! Have a wonderful weekend too ! :) ox
So, so beautiful. You always inspire me to investigate new natural ingredients to use in my own dye experiments!
Thanks a lot Lottie Juliet ! :)
That is such a beautiful colour! It's amazing to think it comes from avocado skins. Thanks for the inspiration - always enjoy your blog :)
Thanks a lot Rebecca ! Have a lovely weekend ! :)
I love the colour Avocado gives, very pretty.
Thanks a lot, Julie ! Have a lovely weekend ! :)
I love this scarf, so delicate.
This colour is really wonderful! I'm curious if you had to use quite a lot of skins to achieve this depth? I tried dyeing with avocado skins once and ended up with a very pale colour, I assume that I didn't use enough.Also have you ever tried avocado pits?
Thank you ! Yes, I did use a bunch of them, but we're 5 at home, so each time we eat avocadoes, it's at least 5 at the same time ! I have never tried pits, but it's on my list ! :)
that is a nice pink! I have tried myself in the past but the pink I obtained wasn't by far so striking. I've just alum as mordant, I need to try the soya milk instead. thanks for postingmarta / dying to dye
