Organic Fabric Dyeing — Review by Patty Martin
Overall Rating
This book includes a lot of detail on the history of fabric dyeing in America as well as how to dye fabrics organically. I found it interesting that very toxic chemicals used to be used in the dyeing process and a lot of these chemicals are now outlawed. They did a lot of research at Williamsburg to duplicate the old dye recipes, but replacing the toxic chemicals with chemicals which were just as effective, but not as toxic. They go into a lot of detail in the book on how to get different shades and tints of each color using the different combinations of ingredients. (Posted on 3/21/14)
Organic Fiber Dyeing: The Colonial Williamsburg Method — Review by James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
"Organic Fiber Dyeing: The Colonial Williamsburg Method provides details on color-dyeing fabric techniques used by 18th century Williamsburg people, and covers non-toxic dyeing methods used in traditional ways. Nine natural color sources are revealed in 'recipes' that demonstrate how to create 14 colors for all kinds of fabrics, textiles and yarn. Photos by Barbara Lombardi round out the information and provide fine embellishment to a lovely book highly recommended for any fiber artist interested in learning non-toxic and old dyeing sources and methods." --James A.

Organic Fabric Dying — Review by Kathie R Kerler
A terrific book for anyone interested in dying with natural coloring agents. The author Max Hamrick clearly knows his subject. Included in the text is the history of dying during America's colonial era, a recipe with easy-to-find ingredients for nine colors, and a useful glossary. Plus, beautiful photographs.
