I’ve been reading a lot about yarn dyeing lately and that’s what today’s daily quote is about. It comes from the introduction to Harvesting Color: How to Find Plants and Make Natural Dyes by Rebecca Burgess.

“For thousands of years, the art and craft of natural dyeing has connected our creative urges with the inner workings of the natural world. As humans dyed fibers and then turned them into textiles and a range of other useful everyday objects, they transferred color from the plant and mineral kingdoms into human material culture. The dye processes that have evolved through the centuries are an outcome of both human error and conscious creation.”

Food for thought … Are you interested in natural yarn dyeing?
