Always soak bark and roots overnight before heating. Use a dye bag when dyeing wool or the bits will get stuck in the fibers. Heat slowly to below a boil, boiling may dull colours. No mordant needed but alum will intensify the dye results.

 

Poplar bark comes from a sustainable, renewable source in Europe.
