avocado dyeing; first bath & exhaust bath. various cotton fabrics, some cotton yarn, and a length of cream wool. first i scoured them in a soapnuts concentrate and soda ash, then using aluminum sulfate as the mordant, i simmered fabric x1h, rinsed and left wet. boiled avocado skins a short time... removed, and soaked 1 day, then simmered x 1 h. the pinks developed a much brighter tone.
