Colours of the Earth (Natural Dye Recipes)

The Colours of the Earth Dye book contains my own tried and tested dye recipes using dyers greenweed, saffron, madder, logwood, alkanet, cochineal and more. Contains comprehensive instructions for good preparation of fibres and fabrics. The principal of dyeing is also fully covered, making this more than a recipe book, but more a manual that will enable the novice dyer to carry on experimenting.

Each cover is individually hand-painted in natural dyes and so will differ from the picture shown and can be signed by me on request.

This new edition (v3) contains more recipes including my own dye mix recipes for reds and purples, as well as more detail on scouring fleece.

The new version of the book is now A4 and comb-bound.
