Dyeing your hand spun wool yarn, roving or wool fabric is fun and easy! There is great pride in knowing you have used free-for-the- picking garden plants, wildflowers, leaves and lichens from nature. The colors are always beautiful and timeless, and somehow they always harmonize together.

You will need:

  1. Four different mordant chemicals: alum, iron, tin and copper- sold separately.
  2. A set of pots and utensils separate from cooking.
  3. Some wool yarn, fabric, roving or clean fleece.
  4. Water, time, these NATURAL DYE RECIPE CARDS
  5. An armful of easily found common local plants!


A set of 15 NATURAL DYE RECIPE CARDS for dyeing wool with common local plants with SIMPLE instructions, SIMPLE record keeping, SIMPLE fun!!

With the easy, clear directions and the laid back, no-fuss attitude you expect from Janet Conner Designs.
