I recently completed a very large natural dye bath with one of my closest friends, and business partner, Elyse Welcher from Littlewings designs . What better way to cure the cold wintery January blues than to throw on an apron and begin a several day natural dye journey that yielded over 120 unique results?
Each year we hold a dye bath to obtain a natural Pantone color of the year. The last two years have been challenging, but we managed to obtain a lovely shade of emerald in 2013 and a radiant radiant orchard last year. We love experimenting with over dyes and different modifiers to get just the right shade and enjoy the challenge that the Pantone color of the year gives to us each year. This year's color of the year is Marsala and it may be our biggest challenge yet.
I'll be sharing the results of our dye bath over the next few weeks. Stay tuned and follow our journey to Natural Marsala!
