Ribbed cotton shirt hand dyed with sustainably farmed Cochineal insects and indigo pigment. 19" wide x 26" long. Hand wash only to preserve pinks. Imperfections and variations exist in the dye colors.
Item is 100% post consumer cotton; thrifted, cleaned, scoured, and dyed with botanicals. Hand wash inside out in cold water, hang dry. Ironing is ok. All natural and biodegradable dyes. Imperfections and color variations exist. Dyed in Colorado, USA. Colors I do not sustainably forage for I source ethically from Botanical Colors in Seattle.
Sizing: I recommend measuring a shirt you own as a reference for finding the best size for your comfort. Not all “Larges” are the same exact size, as manufacturers of items vary. If you don't have a measuring device, a standard piece of printing paper can work as a rough guide, as they are 8.5” x 11”.
A note on skin sensitivity: I use only biodegradable, non-toxic, planet safe soaps and fabric softeners to make sure our fabrics are safe for all skin types (our favorite is 7th generation products). While it is very rare, some people find mullein irritating to the skin. Our other plant dyes have almost no record of allergies but do please make sure you are not allergic to any of these plants before using our textiles on your own skin.
