|THE ART & CRAFT OF NATURAL DYEING
Traditional Recipes for Modern Use
The author consolidates the lore of older dyers with his own first-hand experience to produce both a history of natural dyes and a practical manual for using pre-synthetic era processes on all the natural fibers. A general section on dyeing and mordanting and a glossary introduce the beginner to dye technology. Scores of recipes provide detailed instructions on how to collect ingredients, prepare the dye vat, troubleshoot, and achieve specific shades.
