Madder Root

SHIPS BY DECEMBER 4TH

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.

For protein fibers, a mordant can be used but is not necessary in areas with hard water. Mordant cellulose fibers using tannin (such as our sumac) and alum.

Soak roots in water for day or more before heat extraction, or just solar dye. Adding too much heat may dull the colors! The chopped roots of this rubia tinctoria are wildharvested in Morocco.
