  1. Never would have thought of cinnamon. Bet that dyebath smelled fabulous!

    • It was amazing! I’ve found that boiling the cinnamon first makes it a more red/pink dye bath. Just pouring boiling water into the jar with the cinnamon was more beige/tan.

      • Have you tested the lightfastness? Turmeric being so amazing as well but going white after just one day in the sun….

      • I’m not sure how you test lightfastness.
        I had all the pieces on a rack drying in full south sun for a day or 2 and all the colours are as the picture shows. That was before washing though.
        I’m in the process of posting pictures after the wash. The cinnamon got a little lighter but did stick.
