Traditional Dyes for Modern Fiber and Fabric Lovers.

Color, color, and more color – dyeing was just as important to the citizens of 18th-century America in places such as Williamsburg, Virginia, as it is to today's fiber artists.

Using botanical recipes, fiber artists can blend the historic old with a vibrant new world of pure color.

Nine natural color sources are mixed to create 14 beautiful colors for wool, cotton, or linen fabrics, textiles, and yarns.
