Madder (bright red color, above) and Osage Orange (yellow color, below), Queen Anne's Lace (soft green color), black eyed Susanna's (moss green), Sumac (Confederate Grey), black walnut hulls (rich chocolate brown), sassafras bark (tan), onion skins (golden/orange) and dandelion roots (celery) are only a few of the natural plant dyes readily available for the gathering.
To Dye, use any untreated white wool or natural cloth. I suggest no less than one quarter pound and up to 1 pound of wool per dye bath. Tie the wool loosely in several places so it does not become entangled.
Natural plant dyeing is a magical project that begins with gathering plants and ends with the creation of beautiful colors.
