  1. indigo
    1. 1.
      a tropical plant of the pea family, which was formerly widely cultivated as a source of dark blue dye.
    2. 2.
      the dark blue dye obtained from the indigo plant.

indigo is the natural dye I have used the most this year.  Tinctorium  ran an Indigo workshop alongside the Boro exhibition at Somerset House. Although I have used Indigo to Over dye found, discarded and Vintage fabrics to use in my weave, it was a great space to take part in a work shop instead of running them myself.
