In the dye-pot: More Natural Dyes

Spring was in the air in the PNW this weekend, so I decided a little natural dyeing was in order. I have some extracts on order and plants growing in the garden, so I’m anticipating doing a lot more dyeing in the coming months. 

 I love the yellow that onion skins give, so I dyed up a few skeins using onion skins that I had been saving. 
I also experimented with using avocado pits to dye a skein. It is a more subtle color, but I love that this is what results from them. 


Both of the onion skin dyed skeins are listed in my Etsy shop, and the avocado pit dyed skein will be available after it has had a wash and is dried. 

If you’re interested in trying natural dyes on your own, CreativeBug has a few classes available on their site.
