Avocado Dyed Gulf Coast Native Fleece


Avocado Dye

Okay okay. That’s a quart of avocado dye, an ounce or so of Gulf Coast Mary fleece, mordanted with alum and no final pH shift. C’mon, I just had too little dye for the amount of fiber in the dyepot. Did standard hour long simmers in mordant and in dye. Cooldown. Rinse. Ehn. Frankly, I get better color from Virginia Creeper…without all the waiting and cooking and waiting and so on. To be fair, I’ll need to dig up a gallon jar and pack it with avocado skins. For now though…I’ll try one more small dyepot…and pH shift with ammonia or soda. Another day. This is rainy season. Enough said.
