New on this page and want to know about the step-by-step process of dyeing cotton? Dyeing with nature
Goldenrod gives a very deep yellow, almost like a rich ochre. I loved the color and tried it on a few different sort of cottons.
Go to this page to have the correct step-by-step process. I try to have a dye bath without stalks nor leaves in it but did not chop the tiny flowers. I leave the cotton overnight in the dye bath.
I picked the flowers in August. I pick a lot more flowers than seems to be necessary. I use pieces of scoured cotton fabric which weigh (less than) 100 gram.
This piece of fabric did it’s own way, hard headed like myself, it became quite something else than originally intended.
The teabags I carry hold sayings: ‘When was the last time you were proud of yourself?’, ‘When was the last time you challenged yourself?’, ‘What gives you energy?’, ‘What is a good characteristic of yours?’ and ‘Are you a dreamer, thinker or doer?’ To each saying I give clear answers. I learn a short trip…
Incorporating the gifts of nature, for food, teas and coloring. Some are really money savers: who does not like that?
