this is not a how-to manual. it’s a how-may manual.

whether you are a seasoned natural dyer looking for an additional resource to add to your library, or an enthusiastic newbie in search of a new book that teaches you something besides how to dye another blouse or pair of socks, or a sceptic wondering what, if any, place natural dyeing might have in your life, this ebook has something for you. focusing less on the exact science of how and why natural dyes do what they do (although that gets touched on as well), ash looks at the practice as a whole. placing their own practice within the contexts of being a white settler living on indigenous land in canada’s northern climate, in an urban space and with a dismal excuse for a green thumb, ash goes over everything from how to forage ethically, to the desire for colourfast shades within a broader conversation around maintaining a slow and mindful wardrobe, to a brief history of natural dyes in the global textile industry, to basic safety considerations, to basic recipes for prepping popular fibres, and more.
