Navajo tea, also called greenthread, grows wild all over our area from late spring through the summer. It’s brewed as a drink, but our tea is bundled for dye in groups of 20 blossoms. Our friend Morris Muskett picked and bundled these and they’re all ready for your dye pot. Just add water. You’ll get a gold shade on natural wool and a dark green if you overdye gray. Or you can add some alum and cream of tartar for an orange hue. It will work well either fresh or dried.
