Natural Dyes - Dried Leaves Japanese indigo (Persicaria tinctoria)
Japanese indigo (Persicaria tinctoria) dried leaves from my garden in South Carolina. Harvested by hand and air dried. No pesticides are used on my plants.
The dried leaves work best with protein fibers, silk and wool.1 ounce of dried leaves will dye approximately 10 ounces of fiber, cloth or yarn.
The indigo must be extracted from the leaves. This will require both Soda Ash and Thiourea Dioxide.
I highly recommend John Marshall's book "Singing the Blues"!
