Recently I have been eating and collecting lots of avocados. They are also good for you. For dyeing with avocado, I have been drying the skins and pits in the greenhouse. It’s funny how they make good dyes as the flesh is such vibrant green. who would have thought that avocado would give you nice pink colours? I have done some post about things that are edible and dye at the same time. Below are my recent dye experience using avocado with alum mordant. From the top is wool fibre and below is silk fibre. They were laid on plain cotton (cellulose fibre). They were pre-mordant with alum mordant before putting into the dye pot.
