How to Dye at Home with Onion Skins | Natural Dyes | Botanical Colors
- Onion skins can produce a range of colors, from orange to purple, depending on the type of onion and the fabric used.
- Unlike many natural dyes, onion skins do not require a mordant to be effective, as the dye is absorbed well by the fibers.
- The light and wash fastness of natural dyes can be improved with the use of a mordant, but this is not necessary for onion skins.
- To dye with onion skins, start by scouring the fabric and then simmering the onion skins in a pot of water for 30 minutes.
- After simmering, add the wet/damp fabric to the pot and simmer for an additional 30 minutes.
- Allow the dyebath to cool and then rinse the fabric thoroughly.
- For soft olive green colors, dip the dyed fabric in an iron solution.
- The light fastness of the dye can be improved by storing the dyed fabric away from direct sunlight.
- It is also possible to reuse the dyebath for subsequent dyeing sessions to achieve paler shades.
