This is a two color package of 2 bundles, 2 oz EMERALD GREEN and 3 oz NATURAL tan, for a total of 5 oz. of beautiful, premium dyed & natural Florida Long Leaf Pine Needles. The dyed needles have been dyed to a rich Emerald Green and will make a stunning pine needle basket in a class of it's own. The needles in these bundles average between 11" - 15" and have the caps on. All bundles will include extra needles to compensate for any breakage. Each order is gathered, then given a quick sterilizing wash to remove loose debris and then dyed to a rich, intense color (natural needles are undyed). They are then cold rinsed and dried in the sun before being weighed and neatly bundled into precisely weighed bundles. If you prefer them loose, just let me know. They can be soaked right before use. I recommend using an old roasting pan and soaking them in warm tap water, just enough to cover needles, for about 30 minutes. This will render them flexible for use in coiling. Do not soak the dyed and natural needles together. You can expect some bleeding of color during this process so please take appropriate precautions to protect your hands and clothing.

There are enough needles here to make a couple of small baskets. These colors have a pleasing effect together. If you are gifting your creation, the colors work well for a man's gift. Use them with gourds and embellishments or alone as a beautifully coiled basket. If kept in dry storage, your pine needles will last a long time. I find that mine do best in plastic bins on my screened porch, where they are kept dry but still get a slight amount of humidity from the air to keep them from drying out. I have some needles in my personal stash that have been stored this way since 2008 and are still in great condition (make sure your needles are completey dry first before storing this way, otherwise you risk mildew).

If you are interested in other colors, please email me as I have many dyes and can make a wide variety of colors.
