This Natural Dye will give shades of yellow and mustard.

The use of mordants is not required as this is a substantive dye.

Use this Natural Dye at a ratio of 100% dyestuff to fibre.

The left-hand skein shows how all the skeins originally came out of the dye pot. The other four were each dipped into a different modifier bath for approximately 10 minutes. From left-to-right these modifier baths were Citric Acid, Ammonia, Copper and Iron.

The dyed samples are as follows
Alum – no modifier = warm orange brown
Alum + Citric Acid = lighter orange brown
Alum + Ammonia = red orange brown
Alum + Copper = deep orange brown
Alum + Iron = deep orange brown
