Avocado + Madder Root

This piece of natural wool was dyed first with avocado on the base layer, then overdyed with madder root.

AVOCADO: Pits and skins of avocado can give lovely pinks to purples when iron is added.

MADDER ROOT: The roots of this plant must be at least 3 years old to produce red pigment for dyeing. I grow this in my garden and supplement with madder root from Maiwa.

SIZES:

NOTE: The price listed is per fat quarter. I have 2 fat quarters in stock - the pieces are already cut.
Fat quarter - approximately 16" x 26"-28"

All wool shrinks differently. Felting occurs naturally during the dyeing process, giving the wool a lovely soft hand.

I use only natural dyes that have a proven track record for being color fast. Like all fabric that has been dyed, however, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight will cause fading (think of those south-facing display windows we see with faded clothing).

All my wool listings are small batch. Please purchase what you need for your project because color matching will be impossible!

I hope you enjoy creating with these naturally dyed wools as much as I love creating them!
