Hand Dyed Goods

Hand dyed with natural dyes which are all plant based except cochineal which is made from insects. Some dyes such as acorn, avocado, purple cabbage, onion skin and marigold are made by boiling down the plant material. An iron solution is made from rusty nails and vinegar. Some dyes are purchased as powder or extract such as indigo, cochineal, logwood and brazilwood.

All fabrics have been mordanted with alum so the colours will last. Fading over time is natural but avoid bleach, anything acidic and direct sunlight to keep your colours a long time. Machine washable (mild detergent and cold water is best.) 

Also note: Colours may appear slightly different in these photos and on your computer screen that the real thing.
