dyeing with black beans

Black Beans Dye turns out they're not only one of my favorite foods but make a beautiful dye as well. beans, how i love thee!

Black beans are not only delicious and nutritious. You can also dye your yarn with it. And the color is actually very pretty. Not what I would have expected.

Heat will destroy the blue color, so all you have to do is put your pre-wetted fiber into the bowl and wait. Black bean dye is very sensitive to pH, so you can play around with the color by adding a little baking soda or vinegar. My tap water is alkaline and so I got a beautiful bright blue. I used 1k of beans to dye 200g (of wool)
