Natural Dyes- Amazing!

Red cabbage and avocados!

To start with, I boiled red cabbage. The results were incredible. The water turned first blue, and then, after further boiling, a deep purple.

The fabrics are much brighter than the picture shows.

The avocado was interesting. I boiled the skins in one pot, and the avocado pits in another.
The dye front he pits is a tangerine color! The skins, as I have seen before, developed a more delicate peach color.

All in all, a productive day!
