Dark

Naturally dyeing black.
SERIOUSLY!

This has eluded me for a long long time.

I have tried many times, and come up short.

BUT! Guess what!?

I did it!!! I really did! I dyed some cotton fabric. And guess how I did it!?

Well, i'm going to tell you. Because I tell all of my secrets!
I used:
Alum/Iron/Cream of Tartar as mordants
and I used:
logwood extract/chestnut/onion skins/madder roots

WOW!
I literally danced when I rinsed this out.

Today is a win!
