African Marigolds (Tagetes erecta) are a cheerful favorite in my summer garden, and I just love that they create a cheerful gold yarn as well! This listing is for actual organic dried marigold blossoms, carefully cut and stored over a year of growing. There is a large amount of dye potential packed into each blossom, but 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.

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!

**Please note that these are French Marigolds; excellent for dyeing but if you are looking for Calendulas for more medical applications please search elsewhere. NOT for human consumption**

*Only available for domestic shipping, thanks for understanding!*

- Organic Dried Marigold Blossoms (Mix of Tagetes genus)
- Color: Produces gold to mustard yellow on mordanted fiber
- Amount: Sold in 20gm units (each unit will dye about 50gm or 2 oz of fiber). Message me if you would like to buy a larger amount!

Because of the variabilities of working with nature to grow flowers/harvest shrubs and then hand dyeing the fiber, each skein is a soft, squishy, work of art. Your skein will be similar, but maybe not exactly like the one in the picture.

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!
