Book Overview

This book will show you how to extract dye from wild plants, garden herbs, kitchen waste, as well as fruit and vegetables that you can buy from the supermarket. Dye your own fabric, yarn and clothing whilst using soya milk to bind the colours. There is colour potential all around us just waiting to be unlocked

I share my methods with you, step-by-step. The pages are bursting with photos of the dyeing process as well as photos of fabric and yarn samples from lots of different plants.

Perhaps you already dye with plants using conventional mordants such as alum and would like to try the more natural soya milk method for fixing colours? Maybe you are beginning your journey with plant dyeing now? Either way, there is something for you in my book.

The book covers the following plus more

  • choosing plants that will give promising results in the dye pot.

  • my methods for producing deep pinks from avocado skins and stones (pits/seeds).
  • altering colours by changing the pH of dye.
  • using iron or rust water to darken your dyed Read More chevron_right
