Indigo dyeing of wool
Michel shows the preparation of indigo vat for wool, and the creation of color palette for wool. He talks about the after care with vinegar and shows another after bath with alum.
Overdyeing indigo dyed wool with other dyes, nice greens
One way to get complex shades, nice greens and purples, is to overdye the indigo. Michel shows you how.
Mordanting the wool
In this course, Michel gives us four recipes for mordants, one classic and three completely new.
This technique is original technique developed by Michel Garcia. It requires no mineral mordant at all and is 100% organic.
