A couple of days ago I finally got around to dyeing one of my SDA off-white sweatshirts.
I tried a little concoction of Indian Almond (Terminalia catappa) leaves and some Taiwanese highland tea-leaves.
Boiled the ingredients for 30 minutes, and left soaking overnight:
Decided not to blend the ingredients, as I didn’t want a proper brown.
In it goes for a full-day soak:
I chucked the sweatshirt in for two machine-washes, with detergent, to remove excess dyes:
I have a couple of spots of darker staining, but oh well, I’m happy with my very amateur results.
Also dyed a SDA T-shirt and an Eternal ‘Kula’ polo-shirt just yesterday, with the same solution – more pics of those later on 🙂
Now I have to decide what colour (and how) to dye the other sweatshirt… Suggestions?
