Anyone wishing to learn about the Natural Dye process.

* Perhaps you've purchased Natural Dye and are not sure where or how to begin...

* Or, you're hoping to learn about the process before diving in...
* Or, you're in need of a refresher before jumping back in.
"Intro to Natural Dye" is a downloadable, instant digital resource that's perfect for any fiber or textile-enthusiast (think: knitters, crocheters, sewers, weavers, and more). If you, or someone you know, works with yarn/thread/fabric/textiles, you've likely wondered what it'd be like to dye your own custom, unique, earth-friendly threads to get that perfect shade or hue.
The e-book teaches how to get started in a complex and yet natural and simple process, and is equally fun for artists and crafters, designers and decor-lovers, science-math-geeks, teens, (older) kids and homeschoolers (with adult supervision) & home-chefs who've wondered about the process of cooking up color.

* COLOR NOTE: ANINI Designs is not responsible for the color you reach through this varied and multi-faceted process. Your color results will be determined by how you approach the Natural Dye process (e.g. as in, what minerals are present in the water you use, what temperatures you heat to, which mordant you use, what type of metal pot you choose to mordant and dye in, what fiber type you're dyeing, etc.).

* HEALTH NOTE: Natural Dyes and Mordants may cause irritation to skin. Each person has their own sensitivities. This e-book covers the entire process but encourages you to use both a face mask to avoid breathing in particulates and steam, as well as gloves, especially if you have sensitivities. Please read and make your plans to use Mordants and Natural Dyes with care, taking all necessary precautions (e.g. use gloves and face mask) while handling, pouring, transferring, cooking, etc.
