about the dye plant -

lavender & black beans –

I planted this lavender in my garden fall of last year, and have been collecting the flowers since. Once the silk soaked in the lavender, I saw that the color was shifting towards a yellow. I have been trying to dye more greens, so I decided to throw the silk into a bath of black beans, which created this soft green.
