These are the photographs of the progress I made using avocados as dye. After getting masses of advice from a Cambridge lingerie company, I was told that the beetroot, pomegranate and turmeric that I was using were fugitive dyes and the colour never lasts. So, I tried using Avocado instead and… voila! I’m so glad I have. I’ve been able to dye my favourite snood for winter and a practise piece of material. Now I know that this dye works, I’ll be trying it out on recycled paper to see if the pages create the desired effect.
