Seasonal Plant Dyes

by Alicia Hall

This beautifully-illustrated book takes you on a botanical journey through the year, showing you how to create colourful and environmentally-friendly plant dyes. You’ll learn sustainable methods of growing and harvesting plants; the tools and techniques required to extract dye; which fabrics and yarns to choose; and the simple method of using soya milk as a fixative, to ensure rich and long-lasting colours.

The book includes easy-to-follow tutorials explaining how to make four stunning pieces using seasonal plant dyes: a linen cushion cover, embroidered picnic blanket, hot water bottle cosy, and a quilt.
