Wild Dyer

$29.99
In The Wild Dyer, Abigail Booth demystifies the 'magic' of natural dyeing and shows how to use the results to stunning effect in 15 exquisite patchwork and stitch projects, including a drawstring forager's bag, an apron, samplers, cushions and a reversible patchwork blanket.

Focusing on how to grow or gather your own materials - from onions and avocado skins to chamomile and comfrey, nettles and acorns - as well as scouring, mordanting (using fixative), and setting up a dye vat, Abigail explains how to create effective dyes. And once you have them, how you can produce beautiful, contemporary textiles that can be used to create projects that can build on your skills.
