A Garden to Dye For

How to Use Plants from the Garden to Create Natural Colors for Fabrics and Fibers
by Chris McLaughlin

 

Home-grown botanical dyes are in, and they're part of today's shift toward natural and organic living.  And you don't have to have a degree in chemistry to create your own natural dyes. It just takes a garden plot and a kitchen.




A Garden to Dye For shows how super-simple it is to plant and grow a dyer's garden and create beautiful dyes.  

Many of these plants may already be in our cutting, cottage or food gardens, ready for double duty. These special plants can fit right in with traditional garden themes.

A Garden to Dye For
features 40-plus plants that the gardener-crafter can grow for an all-natural, customized color palette.
