The author of this book, Emma Kylmälä, a Finnish natural dyer living in London, cultivates dye plants in her small city garden. She gathers dyeing materials from her urban surroundings and from the Finnish countryside during the summers.

We've also had the pleasure of having Emma as a Loopette in the past and adore her beautiful yarn which we stock under her Town Dyer name. We should be receiving a new batch of naturally dyed cotton soon!

This book is in English.
