OBSIDIAN: This is an 8 piece gradation in indispensible warm blacks and grays, ranging from a deep raven black through gorgeous shades of granite, all the way to a delicate dove grey. I offer two "true" blacks, and this is the warmer of the two. Looks fantastic when combined with sherbet pastels, earthtones, autumn shades, and any warm or bright colors---really makes them pop! Also excellent for portrait artists working in grayscale. These hand dyes have so much more textural interest than plain solid black and gray. This grouping features beautiful, complex visual texture, with dramatic shadows and highlights and excellent color saturation. Medley includes 8 fat quarter cuts, each measuring approximately 18" x 22".

If you're looking for a cooler shade of black, please take a peek at my "Onyx" gradation.
This grouping is dyed with low-impact MX reactive dyes on 100% quilt shop quality combed cotton. This is very nice quality fabric with a fine, even weave, high thread count, smooth surface and nice hand. It dyes brilliantly, needles easily and takes a nice, crisp crease. A pleasure to work with!

Don't see what you need in my listings? Drop me a note! I love to hear from fellow quilters and fiber artists, and am delighted to fill special orders. I keep detailed notes and, while I cannot guarantee exact color matches from dye lot to dye lot, I can usually closely approximate previous work and can often meet your specific needs. I dye on Kona cotton, Pimatex, muslin, flannel, and even rayon, bamboo and linen. Need another base fabric not mentioned here? If it's cellulose (plant) based, I've got ya covered!

Medley includes the 8 fat quarters pictured in the first photo, each measuring approximately 18" x 22". The shipping costs listed below are for priority mail. Please allow 7 to 10 days for me to dye and ship this item. Thank you!
