Sharing a new pigment bloom of 2021 a utter delight to grow and a favorite of all pollinators.
This delicate flower provides so much vibrant pigment. Works well with the correct scouring and mordanting on protein and cellulose fibres
To release pigment, a slow tepid, near passive extraction, is recommended for a bright color, at a temperature ranging between 28°- 32°C. At a higher temperature an earthy orange blush is recreated
