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.
Dried hibiscus (I just got a handful of it)
Water (a full pot of water)
Cheesecloth / strainer
- Simmer hibiscus in filtered water for about 30 minutes (I just used tap water because Scotland’s water is pretty damn clean)
- Let cool then strain through strainer or cheesecloth
- Change pH as you desire
