Farm to Yarn

Whitney snips goldenrod from a field behind her house. On this day, we gather bucket- and basket-loads of this abundant plant to supply the necessary 10:1 ratio for dyeing fiber with goldenrod. (Some dyes require far less plant weight. For instance, onion skins, which are already dried and contain natural tannins, only require a 1:1 solution — equal parts plant and fiber by weight.) | Photo by Sam Sveen
