Plant-Based Dyes: Indigo, Madder, and Weld

If you can cultivate these three primary color plants, then you can create your own bright, natural dyes.

This hand-dyed madder root yarn is one of more than 30 naturally-dyed yarns that Laura Krugh sells at her Etsy shop ColorscapeStudio, which is based out of Dayton, Ohio.
