Prepare the avocado pits

Wash avocado pits completely to remove any flesh. You would need 3-4 avocado pits per 1/2 lb of fabric.

Mix everything together

Put your whole pits into the bottom of the pot. Add enough water to cover the fabric that will be dyed.

Give it time

Remember not to boil the pigment for too long, it's the time not the heat that produces the richest hues.
