- I boiled 2 cups of wine. (I chose a light pink wine to get a pink color, but I want to try red next.)
- I brewed one pot of strong coffee.
- I took three strands of hemp, and poured the wine over it in a bowl with a lid, covered it, and let it sit for 3 days.
- I did the same for the coffee, however, I put the coffee grounds in with it and even added more after I made a pot of coffee the next day. Again, I let it sit for 3 days.
The wine dye turned out a very light pink and the coffee just turned the beige hemp a shade of light brown. I was very happy with the results, and I look forward to trying more! What natural dying techniques have you used?
