green and yellow redux
Thanks everyone for your input into the dye issue. I was able to find the
Pinyin names for benihana and kihada, and buy them for very cheaply at a
Chinese herbal shop. I only paid $8.00/lb for the benihana, and the kihada
was about the same. If I had read your reply earlier, Solveig, I might have
been able to buy the kariyasu as well!
Well if anyone needs these dye materials, I would be happy to purchase and
ship them to you, as the owner was very willing to buy for me in bulk--I
only have to give him 2-3 days notice for when I need the materials. His
prices were much less expensive, by nearly 50%, than the other local shops
or online vendors.
Well, next I need to scour my sample scraps and then I get to start my
dyebath this week. W00t!
