I don't think I'll undertake natural dyeing soon, but I would like some suggestions from you for books to begin with...I think I'll wait to try this when my grandson is a little bit older and we can do it together.
I started with Wild Color by Jenny Dean. It may be out of print now, but it's a good book for learning the basics. From there, it is a matter of picking leaves, flowers, bark, etc. and trying them out.
thanks Karen, (my real first name is Karen, btw...Karoda is my signature name) I'll go to Amazon to see if its available.
surprising! What do you use as a mordant?
This is tussah silk, so I mordanted it with alum. Today I've been getting some celery greens on bamboo thread from the same dyepot.
