Till the Dye Runs Clear

I am rather disgusted.

I thought I was buying good dye-fast clothes.  I reasoned that if wardrobes of undyed, naturally-coloured, or naturally-dyed clothing was unfeasible and out of reach for now, then at least we could wear quality commercial stuff with dyes well-bonded to the fabric and thereby minimize our exposure to synthetic dyes.

But a navy lambswool pullover and some burgundy wool socks just leached dye into their bowls of wash water.

Flint's Eco Colour made the same claims as Burgess' Fibershed blog about synthetic dye's adverse effects on the body.

Argh.  I suppose there are always pale colours.
