The wild dyer : a maker's guide to natural dyes with projects to create and stitch  Cover Image Book Book

The wild dyer : a maker's guide to natural dyes with projects to create and stitch / Abigail Booth.

Booth, Abigail, (author.).

Summary:

Fabrics colored with natural dyes have a beauty and subtlety all of their own. Onion and avocado skins, chamomile and birch bark, and nettles and acorns can produce lovely, ethereal colors and effects. The Wild Dyer demystifies this eco-conscious art, focusing on foraging and growing dying materials; repurposing kitchen trimmings; making and using long-lasting dyes; and creating stitched projects.
