natural dye wrap

For a long, long time I have been thinking about making scarves and wraps. Having had a lot on my plate for the past few years, the idea was put on the back burner, but resurfaced this past spring when I found myself with just a little bit of extra money. I decided to get some high quality, light weight organic cotton fabric and started experimenting with natural dyes. This is the result so far! I have found three colorways and three sizes that work for me. I love the chemistry part of the process, and the fact that they all come out a little bit different.
