Default Re: 9th Pass Pern clothing

V'yon...you make some very interesting points...I agree that most all of the smaller holds would be using natural dyes for most all of their clothings. I could see a small hold buying pakages of harder to obtain dye colors from the traveling traders, to use on some of their gather clothes. I could see a holders wife dying home made threads, and using them to embroider fancy stitches on the families gather clothes.
