ONION SKIN: I collect my onion skins from the local co-op (much of it locally grown!) and friends and family who drop of their collected skins when they fill a bag. The skins provide enough tannin to create a colorfast dye and produce a range of colors from greens to yellows & reds, depending on whether you use yellow or red skins and what mordant you use. It serves at the base here before over-dyeing with walnut.


Price if per fat quarter
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!
