You are currently viewing our natural dye plants category
All the plants in this section can be used for dyeing fibres or cloth. We have selected those that produce good, fast colours without the use of the more toxic mordants, as far as possible. We also offer kits of plants, mordants and full instructions in each of the colours available. There are also some tried and tested books on growing and dyeing your own. Some other interesting websites are; Renaissance Dyeing ;www.renaissancedyeing.com ; Fiery Felts; www.fieryfelts.co.uk and Jenny Dean's website at; www.jennydean.co.uk
These are added to the fabric or fibre to fix the dye to stop it washing out or fading.
