Acorn Tunic Crop
Dyed with locally foraged California Acorns
Acorns are a great dye material for those looking to forage for their color. They're a rich source of tannin, and often saught out for that reason to obstain darker browns and blacks when combined with ferrous sulphate. We are personally a huge fan of the warm browns acorns provided when unmodifed as its quite different than the chestnuts and walnuts we purchase! This dye is a great way to wear a little piece of autumn all year round.

Care Instructions: Due to the nature of plant dyes, color may fade over time. In many cases, the fades and color shifts adds to the beauty and history of these garments. Please wash on cold with similar colors. For garments dyed with indigo, wash separately the first two wash cycles as indigo may bleed more than other plant dyes. Lay garments flat to dry, and do not lay in direct sun. PH neutral detergent is best, we recommend 7th generation as both a detergent and fabric softener.
All Rooted Botanics pieces are hand dyed, vintage, & pre-loved. As such, there may be some variation in color throughout, making each piece unique and beautiful in it's own way. Any major spotting or garment defects will be noted or photographed.
