Summary

As more and more crafters are discovering, it's easy to dye your own fabrics. Now Rebecca Burgess identifies 36 plants that will yield beautiful natural dyes. Gathering Color explains where to find these plants in the wild (and for those that can be grown in your backyard, how to plant and nurture them) and the best time and way to harvest them; maps show the range of each plant in the U.S. and Canada. For the dyeing itself, Burgess describes the simple equipment needed and provides a master dye recipe. The book is organized seasonally, with gorgeous color photographs throughout and as an added bonus each season includes a knitting project that can be made with wools dyed that season.
