The silk, accurate colour: looks different in different lights; In the shade it is more dusky pink, in sunlight - more creamy gold. Dye absorption was very even. Excellent appearance.
Avocado pits prior to using, were soaked for 3 days first
Avocado pits after using, saved for future re-use
Rinsing out silk after dyebath.
Silk drying after washing out
Hardly any colour washed out. The take-up was good: this is because there is a natural mordant in the avocado pits.
This avocado dyed silk will blend well with creams, pinks, peaches and contrast with all other colours; jade greens, blues, blacks and greys.
