Highly-pigmented blooms that can be used for dyeing.

Flowers are embodied sunshine, and sometimes that sunshine can be harvested in the form of a golden-orange dye. Native to plains and meadows of North America, Dyer’s Coreopsis has long been used by textile artists for its richly pigmented petals. Easy to grow and produces a plethora of cadmium red blossoms, sometimes ringed with yellow. Our strain has a higher proportion of solid red blooms than most. Also wonderful as an ornamental alone.

Try making your own solar dye at home using handkerchiefs, napkins, or pillowcases: Measuring twice the weight of fabric to blooms, pour boiling water over your flowers and steep the fabric up to one week in the sun. 

Full circle

All wooden wares come from sustainably sourced wood and are finished with a hand blended mixture of local bees wax from honey & the hive and local walnut oil.
