Berroco Portfolio vol. 1 is near and dear to my heart – something I dreamed about doing – and getting to finally see the book come to life was the highlight of my first year at Berroco.

I recognized them immediately from reading one of my favorite natural dyeing books, Harvesting Color by Rebecca Burgess. Read more
