about the dye plant -

avocado & cabbage –

Usually, dyeing with avocado producing a range in tones from apricot to pink. I modified this bath and added in red cabbage that I grew in the garden this summer! The bath itself shifted from yellows to blues and ultimately, after the silk was dried it became this very silky looking grey.
