I’ve dyed silk and cotton fabric with avocado skins. It’s a nice peach dye which doesn’t need a mordant.
I’ve dried the skins and chopped seeds of two avocados. The chopped avocado seeds become more red after contact with the air.
I’ve boiled the avocado skins, seeds and water for about one hour.
The dye solution becomes reddish brown while boiling.
Then without removing the avocado pits and skins, I’ve boiled the dye with the fabric again for about one hour. Some of the fabric I’ve removed after that from the dye bath, while some of the fabric I’ve left soaking till the next morning.
