As you might know, I'm an ardent plant dyer,
having – so I came to realize – a severe habit
of looking down my nose at anything not plant dyed.
That's reason no.1 for introducing commercial low
impact textile dyes into my practice.
Reason no. 2 is that I feel increasingly allergic
against the smells of some plant dye stuff (boiled
alkana lately, for example – had to throw it all
away unused because I couldn't stand it...)
