Gloriosa Daisies (a variety of Rudbeckia hirta or Black-Eyed Susan) are an amazing perennial flower that I just love growing. Not only do they bloom happily all summer, but they are also favorites of butterflies and finches. Oh, and they also are a dye source! This listing is for actual organic dried Rudbeckia blossoms, carefully cut and stored over a year of growing. The more blossoms you use the deeper your dye results will be. I like to use about 1:2 dried flower to fabric or yarn weight. These flowers also need longer processing time – let them soak for a day or two before putting in your fiber! Visit my blog post at https://knittyvet.com/2017/09/10/glorious-green-from-rudbeckia/ for some further instruction.

To bring out the full dye potential of these flowers you will need to mordant your fabric or yarn before dyeing. You may visit my blog at knittyvet.com to read more about this process, research in a natural dye book, or maybe purchase a dye kit instead here https://www.etsy.com/listing/659068323 , complete with pre-mordanted yarn!

Because of the variabilities of working with nature to grow and harvest flowers, your blossoms will be similar to but not exactly the same as those shown in the picture. The example skein is 1:3 dried blossom to alum mordanted fiber.

Make sure to look around the shop – there are also dye kits, dyed skeins and color sets available! Questions about naturally dyed yarn? See the FAQ below!
