Eco-Dyed Scarves


Eco-printing means dyeing and printing using plants and natural mordants like iron and vinegar, set with heat to make one-of-a-kind creations.

Sisters Maryanne and Tina started working with eco-dyes in the fall of 2019 just before the leaves were gone, after Maryanne spent about a year studying the methods. If this reminds anyone of how we got into making soap, you wouldn't be wrong.

Being stuck on the farm in the spring of 2020 led us to spend lots of time playing, experimenting, and getting interesting colors and prints.  As summer progressed, we found new plants to try and also experimented with other mordants, etc...
When we discovered the results we got with silk, we were thrilled and hope you will be too! These lustrous and luscious scarves are the result.

We offer some of our scarves here.
