For anyone new to natural dyeing there are a few ingredients that are easy to start with, avocados are one of them. Its quite incredible that both the stones and skins yield the most beautiful range of pinks, from soft blush to deep pink. Avocados are easy to get your hands on, you can eat the fruit and save the stones for your dyeing. It is a wonderful thing to eat the fruit, dye with the seed and compost what's left, it feels deeply satisfying to connect with both our food and magic of natural dyes in this way.
