To welcome in the New Year, I decided to set another organic dye bath, this time using an extract of Cutch. According to Kristine Vejar’s amazing book, The Modern Natural Dyer, Cutch “has more than a thousand species…achieving colors ranging from copper to terra cotta.” Linen, cotton and rayon fibers and fabric went into my pot.
Here’s my bounty! I was thrilled with the results. My color range was from a fawn to a mocha, subtle shades with warm rose brown undertones!
Happy New Year! What have you done to artistically/creatively herald in 2017?!
