Extracting the fiber - After harvesting the flax plant, it is time to extract the fiber. In the next post on the Linen Craft series we have a look at the following step: scutching and hackling. At this stage, many new raw materials are sourced, as we purify the longest flax fiber for further use.

Today I’m going to share a really simple method for making patterns with iron water. Iron or rust water can be use as a “colour changer” with almost all types of plant dyes.

Each month, without fail I get asked which plants can be used to make a green dye. Surprisingly, a true green is actually quite hard to create from plants and more often than not the ‘green’ will be more of a yellow, grey or brown shade rather than the sort of rich lime or emerald colours that peopl
