Colours From Nature - A Dyer's Handbook
by Jenny Dean

We are excited and delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Jenny Dean to republish one of her most popular titles which has been out of print for some time: Colours From Nature - A Dyer's Handbook.

Colours From Nature describes in full detail how to prepare and use natural dyes on a variety of fibres to produce a wide range of colours, following safe and environmentally-friendly methods. The comprehensive recipe section gives instructions for over 100 colours, using both traditional dyes such as cochineal, indigo, madder and weld, and dyes from more common plants such as blackberry, rhubarb, oak and walnut.

Jenny Dean has been working with natural dyes for 4 decades. She lectures on natural dyeing and has written widely on the subject. Her books include Wild Colour and A Heritage of Colour.

This exclusive new edition of Colours From Nature has been published in a practical spiral bound format with plastic cover sheets to protect your copy in the dye room! 102 pages (A5 size) with extensive use of colour throughout.
