I've become a real expert in dyeing over the past two months from medieval indigo dyeing, all the way to local black walnuts. I've passed through the cupboard looking for chamomile, and searched far and wide for black logwood. I've passed over tyrian purple because it sells for over a thousand a gram (or some kind of nonsense) and ground dried cochineal insects in a mortar and pestle.
Next step, a spinning wheel for wool and yarn?
