When I first started to dye naturally in 2013, my first days were mostly researching and reading. I can easily say that at that time there was not even half of the current interest in this subject 7 years ago. Therefore, accessing resources and materials was much more difficult and the discovery process had to be much more experimental. As a matter of fact, my first 6 months passed by trying what I read every day from morning to night and clearing the confusion and accumulating the right recipes. Most recipes I found were applied for wool and I was trying to dye cotton. So I was disappointed most of the time.
