Making vibrant green with natural dyes
You would think that green, being such an abundant color in nature, would be an easy color to achieve through natural dyeing. In fact, it's much trickier. This is an overview of dyeing with weld and indigo. I include a few natural dye secrets I learned from a senior master natural dyer!
I hope you find this process as fascinating as I do. It's part art, part chemistry and a whole bunch of experimentation.
