The boys and I have been experimenting with plant dyeing the past couple of weeks. We left butternut hulls, chestnut hulls and goldenrod in the sun for a couple of days, strained and then left some fabric swatches in the solution for another couple of days and found these gorgeous colors emerge.
I will be doing a big pot of butternut hulls soon because that olive green is amazing.
Onion skins also produce a nice color. Maybe you could try some tie-dying with natural dyes!
Yes! I’m going to start saving them for something to dye over the winter months.
