I'm so happy to see this! I've been wanting to experiment with some natural dyeing for my sewing, but aside from indigo and turmeric, everything always seems so muted and I really am drawn more to wearing brighter colors. Seeing these rich purples and some teal gives me hope that I can learn how to do this and still enjoy wearing the results.
Yay! I'm so thrilled you are inspired by these vibrant colors. It's a common misconception that natural dyes are dull and boring. They really aren't, as you can see. I still do prefer my "teal"to be a combination of Indigo+ yellow, it's the most colorfast and so gorgeous!
