Yesterday morning I experimented with indigo dyeing.
I got the indigo dye kit from Dharma Trading Co. and have been wanting to try it for a while.
I plan to make a tablecloth, napkins, a pillow, scarf and maybe some pouches. I dyed cotton, upholstery weight linen, linen/cotton blend, silk and lightweight linen. The silk soaked up the dye the fastest. I still need to do another rinse on some of these pieces.
As I am still learning about dye any tips or advice on running this through the washing machine at the end. I can't seem to find anything about that and I don't want to get dye on anything or anybody.
The effects remind me a lot of the sky today.
