Advice

Wetting

Add a few drop of fabric softner to your water when wetting dyed reed, helping to keep your dyed reed as dyed as possible and to prevent bleeding. Your natual reed should be wetter than yours dyed reed, so that the dyed reed wick that water to it without color and not the natural reed wicking from the dyed reed with color. The dryer you weave with both the better.

Weaving

Cane has two sides the right sided is the bark and only take the dye in some places. The wrong side of the cane is porous and take the dye very good.  You can weave with either side. Using the right side give you a mute look. Using the wrong side out will give you a bright look.

Shipping

Please allow two to three weeks for delivery. I do not keep large stock so that reed and cane is fresh. Weather can cause longer delay.  If it is rainy or very humid I do not dye.

Additional shipping fees may apply for orders from Alaska or Hawaii, so please call for shipping charges.

Prices Increase

Reed and Cane prices are going up with every shipment we receive, since supplies are being held up in China.  These prices are for current stock and  will increase as I dye new reed and cane.  Thank you for your understanding.
