Natural Dyeing by Jackie Crook Natural Dyeing contains vibrant illustrations and step by step instructions for each of the dying projects.

Natural Dyeing by Jackie Crook. Of the sources of natural dye described in this book, I am certainly intrigued by: Rhubarb (yellow, yellow green to copper colors). Tea (browns, the mordants do not vary the color as much here). Natural Dyeing contains vibrant illustrations and step by step instructions for each of the dying projects. For each of the 31 dyes described, wool treated with each mordant type are shown, which gives a beginner like me a sense on how much you can vary color with different salts. There is a color chart index, listing all of the colors shown in the book. The instructions are clear for describing how to optimize dye uptake with different fibers.

For thousands of years, natural dyes have been celebrated for their subtlety and diversity—and, thanks to contemporary concerns about chemicals and toxins, their popularity is surging again. Fortunately, as this vibrant guide so elegantly shows, the craft is both easy and enjoyable to explore and requires no special equipment: just ordinary pots and pans. A thoroughly illustrated tutorial covers all the basics of hot and cool dyeing, and 30 colorful options to try, including roots and plants (madder, tumeric, henna), wood (cutch, fustic), flowers (safflower, dandelion, daffodil), leaves and stalks (tea, rhubarb, indigo), and fruits and vegetables (blackberry, wild cherry, avocado). From pale pinks and vibrant oranges to earthy browns and rich blues, a vast spectrum of hues awaits.

I have been spinning wool into yarn, and this book has been very helpful with information about dyeing the yarn by using natural things like onion skins, avocado peels and many other plant materials. I am very happy with this book and use it often as a good reference.
Too much gorgeous photography, not enough substance.
This is a delight to flip through but most practicle to use.
I have prepared several dye bathes and found their direction clear
and accurate in results.
Nothing personal
Can't wait to try some of them.
I’ve got to say it: This book has stunning, and well-staged photos of natural plant dyes used on: cotton, wool, silk, yarns and fabric. This is a feast for the eyes.

This 2007, soft-cover book has 112 semi-glossy pages, all of which have nice color photos of different natural dyeing agents.

The author of this book is Jackie Crook, an experienced dyer who grows her own items to create dyes; she is also the Founder of Mid-Essex (UK) Guild of Weavers, Spinners, and Dyers.

The publisher is Lark Books.

The array of colors in this book from nature’s bounty creates gorgeous color families for dyes that may never be replicated. Dyeing the swatch is an important part of the process of dyeing.

Look at the ‘Mordanted’ Wool thumbnails at the bottom right of every dye-agent page; the subtleties of metal additives show interesting monochromes that can be used to dye fibers.

After having read this book, I am prompted to use my spiralizer on: onions, red and green bell peppers, and sweet potatoes to see if any interesting dyes can be made. I would like to add cinnamon, tea, henna, chili peppers, turmeric, and crushed basil leaves to see what I end up with.

This book has 3 pre-Main sections: ‘Contents’, ‘Introduction’, How to Use This Book’.

The Main section, ‘How to Dye’ has some sub-sections (i.e. the characteristics, color families, and sources. Buy the book to see these and other details.)
a. ‘Roots’
b. ‘Woods and Barks’
c. ‘Flowers’
d. ‘Leaves and Stalks’
e. ‘Fruits an Vegetables’
f. ‘Special Colours’
g. ‘Optimizing Your Natural Dyes’
h. ‘Colour Chart’

This is an excellent book, which also has a Bibliography and an Index at the back of the book.
I would like to read more books by this author.
The photography in this book is stunning! Sadly, this is neither a good primer to dyeing techniques nor is it a great resource for experienced dyers because all of the "natural materials" used are extremely unusual plants and barks found in India and other exotic locales. This book does not provide the basics for people who are just starting out with dyeing using natural fibers and it does not provide any information about how to acquire these rare materials.

Is it possible to dye with oak leaves or banana peels? That's the kind of natural dyeing information that a novice dyer living in the American midwest needs. I suppose if I lived in a more exotic locale with greater access to botanical shops and markets, I might be able to use this book for something. As it is, I will admire the beautiful colors in the photographs and hope I might be able to mimic the colors with Jacquard dyes.
I bought this book more for the information about the cleaning, mordanting and dyeing processes described in the beginning of the book. And I must say the photography is brilliant. As for obtaining the dyes, I use dye extracts from Table Rock Llamas in Colorado. They offer over 30 colors, including the exotics shown in "Natural Dyeing" (they don't sell toxic mordants). But if I want to grow my own dye plants, I rely on "A Dyer's Garden" by Rita Buchanan, a fantastic little book that gives growing info, dye recipies and results, and a supplier's list to obtain plants and seeds. Finally, I will experiment if I want to see what color a particular plant might give -- I hear bindweed, a noxious weed where I live, gives brilliant greens . . .
It's true, this is a gorgeously photographed book, and the process info is fantastic, but there is no information of any kind for resources. I'm still googling around distinguishing sources for various mordants and plants and materials. Luckily there are stores online selling at least some if not most of the dyestuffs used here. I can't imagine why some of these stores weren't listed at the back of the book as is customary with craft publications. Hints for gathering the materials locally would have been useful as well. Yet still it's a good book.
