Anne Dyer

Dyes from Natural Sources


Obviously born to dye, Anne Dyer explains all aspects of the natural dyeing process for the home dyer, from necessary equipment and dye plant storage to mordanting* fabrics and different dye techniques.

Included is a relatively comprehensive list of some of the more accessible dye plants of North America and the cultural West.

Soft cover with black and white illustrations throughout.

*Keep in mind that some of the recommended mordants have since been found to be toxic, such as chrome and copper, and therefore we of course recommend against those methods.
