More on my Garden dyeing potential.
Dreaming about a new season to come and putting together my notes on my plants in the garden, the next couple of floral forms worth mentioning would be my red grapes Petrik (latin name unavailable) and my Prickly Pear (Opuntia). Not just because these two happened to have got into the same dye bath quite a few times, but much more for the fact of being such a valuable source of a palette other then earthy tones color scheme.
And the color range obtainable from these two is indeed prominent!
The more I am focusing on the natural dyeing, the more evident is the fact that the local plants are of great worth for the natural color palette development. Sounds like a common knowledge, ha? Well, it does, but when you discover your garden-varieties to be true dyeing treasures, that’s a milestone to be specified in your diary!
My next post – more on the red grapes effect!
