This is a washed out natural color linen tea towel. It was one of several dingy looking towels that have been used for a year or two in the kitchen.
They are fine for use, but didn't look so good.
Botanical dyed tea towels now have new life. :)
I feel like I have new tea towels.
From top to bottom:
alkanet - didn't expect that color, it's more purple in soap
indigo (2) - much lighter than I expected, but that's because i deviated from the directions
henna - i thought henna was auburn, but i do like this color
red sandalwood - this was a wonderful surprise
tea (2) - very subtle
turmeric (3) the bottom two were taken out allowed to dry and then put back in the dye bath - is this one great or what?
