Natural dye for ... BROWN

Good Morning all


This is nearing the end of the plants for natural dyeing series on here.  This is for BROWN and also with varying depth of colours you can make it dark or lighter, again adding other plants that give other colours.

I am finding it all very fascinating  and can not wait to make up different batches and do lots of dyeing and log my results.

This is the list for browns and I hope you give it a go!





PLANTS THAT DYE BROWN
Alder (Alnus glutinosa) Bark
Birch (Betula alba) Bark
Hop (Humulus lupulus) Stalks give a brownish red colour
