It's a nice book. Visually, and its whole feel is sunny and friendly. It does invite you to experiment and just have a go, and this is a bonus in itself. It doesn't bother much with mentioning the different properties of plants, such as lightfastness, for instance. And while this seems to make things easier at first and gives more options (there aren't that many substantive, lightfast natural dyes), it is also a bit of a shame not to prepare people what to expect. The lovely wood beads dyed with blackberry started a vibrant purple, but after only a few days turned a rather dusty rosy grey. This is disappointing, if you expected it to last a little longer. This is the only real criticism of the book: I would have welcomed more information on the dyes, and it overstates the value of some dye stuffs at times. But it is visually very inviting, and a fun book.

I am just getting into natural dyeing and was looking for a good book to get me started. I love the layout and the 'feel' of the book. It is not as extensive as perhaps it could be in terms of colors that can be achieved with the different variables. But there is lots of info to get me started.I also like the mini projects that are in the book. Would recommend this to a starter dyer like me.

A pretty book but not the most useful/informative
