This process involved a 5-week fermentation of the walnuts (I left them in a bucket of water outdoors) and was the smelliest thing to boil up. I had to put the pot outside as soon as possible. But it was worth it because they yielded a brown that is beautiful to behold!

Dyeing with plants is alchemy. I feel like a magician.
These colors are all from dyeing with staghorn sumac. The grays come from using an iron afterbath, which I made by soaking rusty metal in vinegar water for a few weeks. All from the book, Harvesting Color.
