Here in a single volume is all the information you will need to extract dyestuffs from common tress, flowers, lichens, and weeds. The heart of this book is 52 recipes for dyes made from natural, easily-obtained dye-stuffs. Each recipe gives you step-by-step instructions that tell you how to prepare your ingredients; how to shred, soak, dissolve and boil the materials you collect; how to prepare your cloth for dyeing; and exactly how long to boil it for optimum results. Includes a history of dyeing before the discovery of America. 154 pp. Softcover.
