turmeric dye

This is the first time I use turmeric for dyeing. I simmered the cotton cord for more than two hours and then rinse them with white vinegar.

{result} a deep yellow color that I'm loving. Now I need some nice felt beads in natural color to keep experimenting with this dye.

  1. That's an amazing colour. It will be interesting to see how colourfast it is. I've never seen Tunisian crochet before; it's really lovely. x

  2. It is beautiful but I also have to wait and see how colorfast it is. I rinsed with white vinegar and did everything I used to like when I tie dyed long ago. Will keep you posted :-)
