Scabious 'Black pincushion' can be used as a dye - it is very pH sensitive so it is fun to play with altering the colours from pink to teal.  It is also not that light fast as a dye - not what I would class as fugitive but I also wouldn't dye anything with it where I wanted the colour to remain the same.  I mainly use it as an ingredient in bundle dyeing where it is much more colour fast, use with shredded onion skins for a great gold and blue combination. 

The leaves come in an airtight sealed Kraft pouch measuring 20 x 12 cm. This allows you to use only a few leaves at a time if you are dyeing small quantities like threads.

All dye packs come with full PDF instructions to allow you to get the best from them.
