Avodaco + Logwood

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


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

LOGWOOD comes from the heartwood of the logwood tree (Haematoxylon campechianum) and grows in Mexico, Central and South America and parts of Africa and India. It produces purples, reds, blues, and blacks, which are hard to achieve with natural dyes. I source my logwood from Maiwa.


NOTE: This listing is for one fat quarter

Fat eighth- approximately 16" x 13"-14"

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!
