One of the fun things about natural dyes is being able to use the natural dye plant to its full extent. Which can often include creating an extra dye vat after your initial dye vat is completed, at least in the case of the woad plant. Being able to get more than one color from …

Natural Indigo dye has a unique color that cannot be matched by synthetic means. While the indigo molecule itself has been created in a lab, there is more than just indigo in the natural indigo dye. Indian Indigo has a predominance of pure indigo molecules, with a sub dominance of other shades of indigo. These …

Woad! We’ve talked about growing it, planting it, its history, and even talked about its amazing and unique color. Now comes the fun part, getting the dye out of it!

While woad is often associated with blue and indigo, those are not the only colors achievable from the woad plant. An entire rainbow of colors can be dyed using just the woad plant, with the happy uniqueness that all woad colors will always look complementary to other woad colors, and are colorfast. Most of my …
