natural dyes

dyeing is science and art, two ways of discovering the wonder of this world. i dyed today using coffee



onion and blackberry


and red cabbage

i also set aside pieces in jars to dye overnight for the darkest possible colors. mordanted in iron or alum. 



  1. Julia, I'm facinated by your process and love your writing about it. Your great sense of humor comes out there-wonderful!
    Just saw the comment option so here I am commenting. These colors are fabulous! I just love that they are so diverse, beautiful and that they come the old fashioned way, from what we have, thankfully, in nature.
