dyed linen napkins laid out on marble counter with eucalyptus

I’ve been wanting to try more natural dye since trying avocados last year and LOVING how it turned out! I had some extra white linen around but wanted to give it a warmer orange/brown-ish tone so that it would be a better fit with my Thanksgiving decor! So I did a little research and decided to try a bit of paprika with some brown onion skins. You can’t quite tell in the photos but they’re a great light shade of a rusty brown tone and they dyed slightly unevenly just enough to give the fabric a bit of extra texture! Just delicious! I want to try it again using soy milk like with the avocado dyed blanket.
