Dye and print with eucalyptus leaves

This is a ‘how to’ guide on dyeing your own fabrics with Eucalyptus dyes.

Eucalypso results were developed though a mixture of reading books on the subject and trial and error.  The following books are great resources but being a natural dyestuff, the results of dyeing with Eucalyptus leaves vary depending on the location of the variety.
