Valuable resource guide: Oct. 22 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a thoroughly researched, tried and tested, almost encyclopaedic guide to dye plants in Scotland that can serve both academic and hands-on interests. Scotland has a quite large number of plants from which dye can be extracted to color wool, whether yarn or fleece, and some other fibers as well. Su Grierson has done a brilliant job of tracking down these plants and then spent years testing and recording the results. No dyer will want to be without this excellent handbook as many of these plants can be found elsewhere as well.
