BOOK: Plant staining (danish text)
Color with nature's own colors
Do you dream of getting started coloring your own yarn? Then this little practical book on plant coloring might be for you?
The plants for dyeing are easy to collect in nature - some can also be grown in the garden or bought dried. The book provides an easy and clear introduction to planting color with nature's plants. Color the yarn at home in your kitchen, in a gruesome kettle or over a bonfire or fireplace in the garden.
There is something magical about collecting plants, coloring yarn and subsequently knitting or crocheting a sweater, shawl or scarf. The colors of nature are just more beautiful and environmentally friendly than the chemical colors.
The author of the book is Vibeke Munk, who was previously a social worker, but now has his own yarn company, the Yarn Board, which organizes courses and sells yarn.
