Looks like it's a pretty neat museum. Glad it was fun.

Pretty plant died yarns. What was the indigo dyed with?

I was assuming that since indigo was originally from shells, that was the "one non-plant" that the sign was referring to - but on further research, there are several plant dyes that also result in "indigo." So now I'm guessing that there was a skein of chochineal, aka crushed bug bits.
