Solar Dyeing

This is a slow method of dyeing that does not require a cooker.

You will need:

  • a large glass jar with lid
  • plant material
  • fibre to dye

Place the plant material in the jar and top up with hot tap water.

Add your fibre and fit lid on jar.

Leave the jar on a sunny windowsill and monitor the take up colour. The dye pot can be left a few days, a week or longer….give it a shake now and again.
