Flowers For Dyeing

The flower garden provides an abundant supply of natural dyes. Leaves and flowers of many of our most beautiful flowers also are suitable for coloring wool or cotton. Good recipes and instructions for dyeing yarn and cloth are available in many books. Including mordants, such as chrome or alum, when you dye will not only fix the colors but will bring out sharper, brighter shades.

We created a pdf file for this post because of the largeness of the content; I sincerely hope this works. Our first time creating with Google Docs!
