Natural Dyes - Dried and Crushed Japanese Indigo Leaves - Persicaria tinctoria
Dried and Crushed Japanese Indigo Leaves
Dried and Crushed Japanese Indigo Leaves - Persicaria tinctoria from my garden in Roanoke, VA.
These Dried and Crushed Japanese Indigo Leaves were harvested by hand and sun-dried. No pesticides are used on my plants.
The dried leaves work with protein fibers, silk and wool and cellulose - cotton, linen, etc.
The indigo must be extracted from the dried leaves.
This method will require both Soda Ash and Thiourea Dioxide.
100 grams of leaves will dye approximately 10 ounces of goods to a medium shade.
Instructions for use included!

I highly recommend John Marshall's book "Singing the Blues"!
