How To Dye Fabrics Naturally
From Renee's Kitchen
Dying fabrics naturally is fun and fairly simple. Keep in mind that only natural fibres take up dyes well, and when dying naturally the end results tend to come out a bit more muted rather than vibrant. Use stainless steel or glass implements to prevent your tools from staining.
Choose your dye medium. Use only ripe, mature, fresh plants/vegetables/berries to be sure to get the best results. You can prepare your medium ahead of time and freeze it for up to 3 months and not affect the end result too much.
Pink/Purple: red/purple cabbage
Red/Purple: basil leaves, huckleberries
Pink: cherries, red berries, pink/red roses, avocado skins and pits
Red/Brown: beets, pomegranates
Grey/Black: blackberries, walnut shells (keep in mind that it's very difficult to get true black)
Orange: carrots, onion skins
Blue: indigo, purple grapes, blueberries, dogwood bark
Brown: coffee, tea, dandelion root
Yellow: marigolds, dandelion petals, sunflower petals, turmeric, paprika, celery leaves
Green: grass, spinach, peppermint leaves
These are just a few suggestions. Experiment with what you have on hand and in your garden.
Prepare Your Fabric
Wash and rinse your fabric thoroughly but do not dry as fabric needs to be wet to take up the dye. If you're using berries, soak your wet clean fabric in a solution of 1/2 cup salt for every 8 cups water. For all other mediums use 1 part vinegar to 4 parts water. The resulting solutions are called "fixatives". Soak fabric for at least 1 hour in the fixative prior to dying. I prep my fabric, then my dye bath, and once the dye bath is ready the fabric is too.
Prepare Your Dye
Chop your dying medium into small bits (the smaller the better to allow as much colour to leach into the water as possible). Put it in a large metal pot or slow cooker and fill the pot to twice as much water as plant material with splash of vinegar added. Bring to a boil then turn down and let simmer for at least one hour (if using a slow cooker, turn on high and let it cook for about 2 hours). The best way to judge if your dye bath is ready is if the medium material is pale and faded and the water is rich with your colour choice. Strain the medium out of the water bath and discard. Return the water to your pot and bring it back to a slow simmer.
The Fun Part
Gently squeeze excess water from the fabric but DO NOT RINSE. Add the fabric slowly to the dye bath and stir it in gently making sure all the fabric is submerged and soaked. Let the fabric simmer for about 2 hours, stirring gently now and then. The longer it soaks, the more dye it will absorb. I like to turn mine off after 2 hours and let it sit overnight to cool and finish the dye uptake.
The Big Finish
Remove your fabric from the dye bath and rinse out any excess dye then wash it in cold water and dry it in the dryer. Adding a cup of vinegar to the cold wash helps to lock in the dye.
Did You Know?
Most of the world uses bidets. Only in North America is it uncommon. It takes to make ONE roll of toilet paper.
