5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book for learning 9 July 2009
By Meghan E. Pietila - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my first year dying with plants, and I checked this book (along with several others) out of our local library over the winter so I could prepare for the short growing season. This is the only one I went out and purchased so I could have a copy on hand. I'm trying to focus on plants I have growing in my own yard, and Rita's book is extremely helpful when I'm trying to figure out what to do with an uncommon dyeplant - for instance, she has a page where she talks about dyeing with pokeberries, but extrapolates from that to give some general rules that should work for dyeing with almost all berries - helped me when I tried to dye using buckthorn berries, mulberries, and cherries. I've since bought several other dye books, but if I could only choose one to have on hand, it would be this one (or her companion book, A Dyer's Garden - but I loved the information on fiber plants that this book had).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 24 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am a fanatic when it comes to dyeing and weaving my own yarn. I really enjoyed this book's dyeing techniques and the methods of extracting natural dyes from their sources. This book is great when it comes to teahing other people about hoow to make their own dyes. I even got my son into dyeing whit natural methods, my son is 14 and usually hates to take any of my advice. This showshow great this book really is!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough depth for a big subject 19 July 2010
By J. Henningson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having used a borrowed copy of Buchanan's Dyer's Garden book, I thought this would contain much of the text from that book PLUS info on growing bast plants. I was wrong. This is an ok introduction to a very large topic, but it does not have the same level of detail. If natural dyes are your primary interest, skip this book and buy A Dyer's Garden instead.
