Just past midnight last night/this morning, I finished up 6 buckets in a delicious indigo dyed linen. I haven’t had time to truly tally all the votes for white vs natural lining, I asked on FB, Instagram and here, but the general gestalt was that white was the perfect foil for the white of the indigo designs. But enough folks liked the natural, so next I’m going to try indigo dyeing on the natural color fabric and use the natural osnaburg for lining!

I had literally 2 minutes to snap a couple of pictures before I headed off to the day job!

I’m excited to see if customers are as excited for my indigo dyed scarves as folks on social media have been:
