Indigo on silk

Bring an item of clothing or other article made of natural fiber (like cotton, wool, linen, or silk) to dip in our indigo vat. Skeins of ‘bare’ yarn and silk scarves are also available for purchase. Results are variable with this magical process but you will get shades of blue. Great for reviving a favorite article which has gotten stained or faded. $5/article, t shirt size or smaller. Children encouraged. Get the blues!  By special appointment only.
