Fine natural dye powder of the highest quality.

100 grams in a resealable pouch.

 

Our excellent madder powder comes from the roots of Rubia Tinctorum, one of the oldest known dye stuffs in the world. It is grown, harvested and processed in Europe, so fair trade is guaranteed. Our madder natural dye extract comes from a renewable source and has a positive CO2-footprint, producing more CO2 than it uses to make the dye.

 

This proffessional grade powdered maddder root will give deep, perfect reds on wool and silk when used at 50-100%WOF. Exhaust baths and different mordants produce turkey reds, mulberry, orange-red, terra cotta, and in combination with other dyes and dyeing procedures can yield crimson, purple, and near black with indigo.

 

Use left over madder dye baths to feed your organic indigo vat.

 

Mordanting is advised as follows;

Protein - 20%WOF Potassium Aluminium

Cellulose - 20%WOF Aluminium Acetate.

 

 

Active dye components; Alizarin and purpurin.

Securely packed in a re-sealable zip bag for easy use and storage

 

Use; grind powder with hot water into a paste. Slowly heat hard water with the dye paste to 60ºC keep for 1.3 hours. Let cool down. The dye is now ready for use.
