The fascinating luminosity of colours from plants can be easily transferred to wool, silk, or other materials at home. Necessary materials, pickling, the preparation of fibers or substances, and different dyeing methods are described in detail.

This richly illustrated book also shows how the dyed materials can be felted or turned into woolen pictures. The traditional colouring of Easter eggs with natural colours or the colouring of the sun is also explained. Last but not least, the authors deal with trend-setting ecoprinting.

Selling Points:
