This book is a simple, easy-to-follow guide to getting started with natural dyeing, introducing and giving an overview of colours, plants, fibres and tools along with basic recipes for lasting colours.
The book is published as an English language print edition of G-uld’s popular Danish book about natural dyeing, En Farverig Verden (2015). The primary focus of the book is dyeing on wool but it also briefly introduces other fibres and woven fabrics.
Plant dyeing is thought to be difficult and demands several years of experience to achieve a good result, but that is not necessarily so. Plant dyeing is an activity in which everyone can take part. It does not demand any particular skills and good results can come even with the first dye bath.
The book is based on G-uld’s personal experiences with natural dyeing and how to achieve a good result.
The book includes a beginner’s guide on how to collect plants, how to interact with nature and how to recognize the plants that give the best, most beautiful colours.
