Along with the fabric the surprise includes a book. The book for the surprise is Hand-Dyed Fabric Made Easy by Adriene Buffington. It is not a new book or a huge comprehensive dying manual but I love its "Black Magic Family." It has 10 gradients from very light to quite dark made by adding various concentration of a dye color and black dye. That is what I used for my Nancy Crow dyeing marathon and what I always use when making coordinated fabric sets.
As always, if you would like to give a new home to the fabric and book just leave a comment. The random drawing is on Saturday and will be posted in the afternoon. Good luck!
