The Fabric and Yarn Dyer's Handbook

Kendall, T (2001) The Fabric and Yarn Dyer's Handbook. Collins and Brown. ISBN 1-85585-879-7

Item Type: Book
Additional Information:

The book intended to illustrate professional approaches to dyeing for the home user and emerged as a response to the existing outdated literature on the subject. Hitherto this information had not been available outside of the profession and the book introduced the user to contemporary innovation and technique, i.e. metallic, and white pigments.

The emphasis is on usability and therefore worked closely with the graphic designer on page layout, i.e. one page, one recipe. Similarly, all the recipes have coding for fabric type, ease of use, time scale to complete, so the reader can be informed about this before starting. Each recipe and step-by-step processes were sampled specifically for the book.

The book has been translated into French and Spanish and sold throughout the world, main sales area in the US.
