Some long time ago in my earliest explorations of All Things Natural and Organic [read When I Was a Hippie] I found myself enchanted with the notion of creating dyes from my natural surroundings. While I was partially successful, with the lack of good information available at the time, it was a hard path to sustain. If only I’d had Sasha Duerr’s new The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes to guide me! This seminal work is probably the only book you would ever need to spend weeks or months or years exploring the latent possibilities of the plants you find in your own environment as sources of rich and wondrous color. What a gift!
The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes is a comprehensive manual for fully exploring dyeing with plants. These plant sources can be drawn from your neighborhood streets, vacant lots, or your own backyard!
Here are some of the plants you are familiar with that can be used for dying fabrics, yarns, ribbons, sheepswool, silk, cashmere, alpaca, and angora (from bunnies!) as well as many other natural fibers.
Jasmine–makes light yellows and pale greens
Rose hips–create a rosy-beige
Lavender–makes shades from light beige to cool purple-grey
Rosemary–makes greens to browns
Elderberry–yields shades of purple, blue and grey
Sour grass–makes a bright yellow
Japanese maple–creates a silvery grey when used with iron (directions included)
Comfrey–makes light to deep greens
Old lace bathed in black walnut hulls and mint
Brilliant blue dye created from red cabbage!
One of the sections of the book I found particularly inspiring spoke of creating small “spiral gardens,” rather a garden within a garden where you might grow plants specifically for your dyeing processes.
A Spiral Dye Garden
A unique way of creating a raised-bed garden is by making it a spiral garden…a round garden made from a spiral of rocks that winds upward, enclosing the soil and warming and dehumidifying it…Spiral gardens can be quite fun to have on a school ground or in the community, since they add both practicality and creativity to the garden landscape.
Everything you need to know has been included in this book, including an extensive list of equipment one needs to get started. The list includes:
*stainless steel pots of different sizes
*a mortar and pestle
*glass jars for mordant solutions (which fix the dyes)
*a sturdy drying rack
*plastic buckets for soaking, washing and rinsing fibers
*glass measuring cups in a variety of sizes
*stainless steel strainers
Author Sasha Duerr was raised on a Christmas tree farm in Maine and in Hawaii. Her earliest roots lie in nature. Out of this rootedness sprouted an artist determined to stick with her natural instincts. She has done much work to provide us with such a fine resource and many will be inspired by her teachings.
