Results of Avocado Peel Dyeing
Well, I must say I'm a little disappointed. There's a definite change in the color of the fabrics but I'm not sure I can say that any of them looks pink---maybe a very subtle pink. They are shades of beige to me. I left them in the dye pot overnight so the fabric was in the dye for a total of about 18 hours. The biggest change was to the piece of white wool. I still have the cut-up pits to play with but I'm going to leave those in the sun for a couple of weeks before I add fabric. I've ordered a couple of books from the library on dyeing with natural materials so I'll keep you posted with my experiments.
