Indigo Gradient Plaid Bandanas
Five shades of pure Vermont-grown blue, woven in a gradient plaid with a lively black and white border. I grow the Persicaria tinctoria (Japanese indigo) plant on my tiny plot of land along the Bull Creek, and process the leaves into pigment each summer. The pigment is then added to a "vat" where, through natural fermentation, it is made available as a dye. Each shade of blue is the result of successive dips in the vat. Each "dip" is from 15 - 45 minutes and the darkest shades take several days to achieve.
These lightweight, generously sized, bandanas are great to tie around your neck, or over your head, for a splash of warmth, color and connection to the land. They can be folded triangularly in four different ways to highlight different colors.
25" square. Four available immediately. Four available for Holiday pre-order (Dec 10th delivery or earlier).
Wonderfully soft and squishy, the New England grown and spun fiber is 50% Romeldale wool / 50% fine grade alpaca. Hand wash.
