Natural Dyeing Recipe: Hibiscus

I got mine in dried flower form, so I ground them up slightly before using the recipe below. I figured it might take a shorter time to extract colour if everything was in smaller bits than bigger bits.

You need:
Dried hibiscus (I just got a handful of it)
Water (a full pot of water)
Cheesecloth / strainer

  1. Simmer hibiscus in filtered water for about 30 minutes (I just used tap water because Scotland’s water is pretty damn clean)
  2. Let cool then strain through strainer or cheesecloth
  3. Change pH as you desire
