Renaissance Period Dyed Wool

Folks who like to do Jacobean-style crewel embroidery and those who create historic costumes for the 16th Century already know about Renaissance Dyeing's wools, but for those of us who don't fit into either category or want to learn a bit about dyeing threads, here is a wonderful interview that talks about the natural dyes the company uses to create historic reproduction wools.

The second link below is the Renaissance Dyeing website.  It is a great deal of fun to explore.  See the wool colors that Henry VIII, William Shakespeare, and their contemporaries would have seen every day!
