The Craft of Natural Dyeing will provide you with all the basic info to get started using natural dyes. Topics include dyeable materials, equipment needed , mordants, dyestuffs, color ranges and how to get them. Lots of fun information and great results with very easy to follow, step-by-step directions.
The author uses several different mordants
to fix the dyes. After examining them, Dharma Trading Co. only carries Alum and the Cream of Tartar assistant because of toxicity concerns, sorry. We also carry the Washing Soda she refers to, but we call it Soda Ash. When dyeing with Indigo, she refers to Thiox, which is our Color Remover. We like this book because there are many recipes using these more safe mordants as well as the more toxic ones. In addition to most of the Natural Dyes we carry, she also talks about using plants and barks that you can grow in your own garden!
