Since reading India Flint’s wonderful book Eco-Colour (2008), I have spent many an hour experimenting with her concept of the eco-print. Flint focuses on printing on wool and silk, and I highly recommend her books and blog. Since I do much more sewing with cotton, linen and hemp (and have made only a few special things from silk and wool)… I have experimented at length to get eucalyptus leaf prints onto cotton and linen fabrics. More of that later. But recently I leaf printed some woolen thermal underwear for a friend (and couldn’t wait for sun to take a picture before I handed them to her–I’m impatient that way). But I also dyed this for myself… Colour me happy with the result!
