Making turmeric dyed playsilks was possibly the easiest craft I’ve ever done. I purchased the silk from Dharma Trading Company in multiple sizes. I bought 8mm habatoi after doing a little research and am really happy with that choice.
Once the silks were in hand, I used up a bottle of turmeric that was past its sell by date. I added turmeric to water to our spaghetti pot until the water was a warm yellow and no more turmeric would dissolve. I probably didn’t need so much turmeric but I wanted a vibrant color.
