Dyeing fabrics with avocado stones and pips

I use alum as a mordant for pre-treating the fabrics.

For each piece of fabric, I use roughly 2 avocados. I always eat the inside of the avocados and then wash the skins and pips.

All of my collected avocado skins and pips are then left in a container to dry in my kitchen.

I used to let the avocados dry out in the fridge as this helped the process quicker but since i have discovered that there isn't much of a difference betwen air drying and drying in the fridge.
