Organic & Locally Grown Pincushion ( Scabiosa ) Dye Flowers
Pincushion - Scabiosa : Deep Purple
50g of deep purple Black Knight Scabiosa grown on Treiber Farms in the North Fork of Long Island.
The color yielded is a blueish-green teal and can be modified depending on mordant choice and acidity of dye bath. It’s also great for bundle dyeing
40% WOF will yield a beautiful teal blue across fibers. Depending on the depth of shade, these will dye 50 - 300g of fiber. A little soda ash brings out purple hues. These can be used in a dye bath, for solid shade we recommend steeping in a mesh or cheesecloth bag, or simply add your cloth in with the pot. Exhaust the bath for lighter shades, and use the spent matter for eco printing.
We can only ship Domestically within the US.
