Haskap Dye

We are weavers and we dye animal fibres with our own natural dyes produced from local plants.  Are you interested in dyeing with natural colour?  Check out our new category and subcategories listed under our header page (above) entitled ‘Haskap Dye‘.

Not appetizing to look at, juicing turns one berry into two possibilities. Slurry can be used for spreads or wine making; juice may be used for jelly, wine, dye, or drunk fresh.  Juice was pasteurized.  Bottles were sterilized.  Dye was added.  Instructions were included.  Off they went.  This batch of dye went to Manitoba Weaver and Fibre Artists Guild for free…one more community that should benefit from our good fortune.  Juicing was done with a Champion commercial juicer that I rewired to 240V.  Fun!
