Madder Root & Extract

CHOPPED ROOT BACKORDERED: Ships when back in stock.

Reds! The one, the only, magnificent madder. Excellent for dyeing corals, pinks, and even deep reds. Great for countertop/window dyeing when a heat source is not available. Fabulous scent.

We have the following options for madder available:

- Chopped Rubia tinctoria roots (as used in my workshop kits). Wildforaged in Morocco. Good for small projects such as silk scarves or those who are dyeing in a mason jar. Do not rinse before soaking. Use 50-200% weight of fiber.

- Madder Extract. Simply dissolve powder in water, heat to steaming with mordanted textiles for 45 minutes or until desired shade. Use 1% of weight to fiber.

- Local whole madder root. Grown locally in Lincoln, Nebraska and hand harvested. Whole roots produce fabulous oranges, reds, and even purples. Rinse before soaking, and consider putting in a blender when softened for maximum color results!

For all madder dyes: Too much heat may dull the colors. A pink of chalk intensifies reds.
