Dyeing with Wild Plants


I prefer soft colours. Some of the garish and blaring colours on the market today are just too bright! Yarns and cloth often have to be gentle in hue, and that’s what you get with natural dyes.

Acorns to yarrow and every imaginable plant in between offer us wonderful colours – some of them you just won’t believe!

Learn to use what Mother Nature has given us and get back to a gentler way of life.

Dyeing with wild plants will make commercial dyes seem harsh, once you’ve seen the colours that mother nature gives us with plants like hyssop, walnut leaf, day lily, and many more. Thirty-six plants are described in this book, with instructions on how to dye yarn or cloth. You won’t believe the colours you can get!
