I was recently given some Vintage cotton tape. And I mean seriously vintage, at least 50 years old. It was quite funny how I ended up with so much. A friend was recently helping her mother downsize when she found a couple of small rolls. She quickly pilfered it for me. When I was showing Alan my stash he went quiet. He disappeared into his shed and brought out about a half a dozen more full rolls. It turns out that when this friend's father died Alan scored a lot of his 'shed stuff', complete with tape. It was in amazingly good condition, a bit yellow but no rotting. An overnight soak in Nappysan fixed that. Now you know there was no way it was staying white. Here is a few of the colours that I have dyed so far.
A Dark Variegated Pink.
And a lighter pink, hopefully, for Maygan.
Blue for boys.
