Avocado pits after using and dyed silk.
Rinsing out silk after the dye bath. Hardly any colour washed out. The take-up was good: this is because there is a natural mordant in the avocado pits.
The silk – accurate colour, which looks different in different lights. In the shade it is more dusky pink, in sunlight – more creamy gold. Dye absorption was very even.
This avocado dyed silk will blend well with creams, pinks, peaches and contrast with all other colours; jade greens, blues, blacks and greys.
