Natural Dyeing

Here's an article and interview with Margaret Ooman on Dyeing fabric naturally. I'm not sure if it will be useful or interesting to readers of this blog, but I thought I'd post it anyhow!

Ooman is a rural physician with a background in chemistry, and she's a textile artist.

In this interview, she mentions light sensitivity of natural fabrics and gathering local plants to make dyes.

Results of Oosman's experiment using wild fennel.
Oosman has an amazing blog: Naturally Dyeing.  Here she records her experiments and techniques in natural dyeing.  The images here show the results of using wild fennel to dye her textiles.  Beautiful!
