*Please note that plant dyes will change when exposed to light and time, these skeins were closed in bags in a closet and they didn't change a bit in at least a couple years, but they may change over time while using them, especially the most fugitive ones like Indigo and Logwood, which may turn grayish or brownish over time.

*To make these colors a bit less fugitive (they will still change over time) a lot of metals are needed which I don't like to use as I don't feel it is very environmental friendly, this is why in the future I'll most likely plant dye with tannin rich based dyes only, as they somehow stain the Yarn/fabric and are much more stable over time.
