Yellow Onion Skins - Grey/Yellow

I use Hamburg/Bleached commercial cane for my baskets. The bleached cane comes very white, so I find, to restore it to it's near natural color, Yellow Onion Skins will restore some color to it. Just enough color to reduce the white effect of the bleached cane color.

Here are some interesting sites about Yellow Onion skins and how they were used:

It is the outer skin of the onion that is used. Red Onions likewise will produce a nice mauve color which is used for dye.
