Fantastic book, I am new to dying wool and this book is well laid out making all the information I need easier to find Perfectly written each detail explained so well when you just need on process.I love this book and all the information in it This is a clear and easy to use book on dyeing There are lots of handy tips and invaluable instructions There are none of the hyper precise measuring and documenting that makes dyeing so intimidating for new potential dyers However, it is easy to see what you get with different techniques and processes as well as differing amounts of dye.I like the colour pictures and the description of some of the most common plant dye sources I also enjoyed the short history and the 25 colours from one dye bath workshop This book is one to keep and use over and over, I think. Think I got the wrong book It s a beautifully done informative book on what plants to use for dying material Unfortunately I was looking for an eco printing dying book Never mind when I have the time haha I shall try put some of the knowledge into practice Thank you.
