hey fiber folks! i am part owner-operator of a facility that processes nuts into food products. part of the streamlining of our process that we’re trying to do this year is to find more uses for shells and hulls, since they’re not generally as immediately saleable as the nut meats.
so, peeps with walnut-hull dyeing experience- what form would you want hulls to come in? they’re generally chipped up a bit coming from our dehuller, and any pile of hull left even fairly briefly starts to mold pretty quickly - so maybe we should focus on trying to dry them? is there a relatively easy way to make a stable liquid walnut dye ourselves?
i have very little dyeing experience, so any insights or ideas are welcome.
Let's get him boys! We'll make him read this tiny ad!
