Ask Apparel’s Groovy Threads

While sorting through my stash of goodies I found my beautiful osage orange dyed silk scarf from Ask Apparel. We were delighted to have them join us as a vendor last May at our Spring Planting Festival. I love their products. All natural, handmade and stylish! 🙂 Check out their site for some groovy threads!

  3. Osage Orange makes a yellow dye!

  4. I didn’t know that the osage orange (hedge apple) could dye anything. What color does it make?

    I have experimented with black walnut and pokeberry dye, though. Black walnut makes things tan; pokeberry is more difficult but it can make a pink color. The black walnut dye was one I originally discovered by accident! (Then, I found out that it had historically been used as a dye.)
