There is some serious dyeing going on here. I have borrowed a couple of natural dyeing books and both are very extensive and comprehensive if you are ready to get into some serious dyeing with a variety of natural fibres and dyes.

This book provides a comprehensive look at dyes from nature; differences in fibers and therefore dyeing techniques required; Topics include: the basics of dyeing; collecting local flora; mordanting; various dyeing techniques; recipes using natural materials for yarns and fabric.

Extensive step by step explanation for setup of your dyeing area, and a comprehensive step by step through the process including cleanup. Charts for dyeing with extracts using various types of fiber.

Patterns are also included. Beautiful illustrations.
