For this Natural Dye an Alum mordant is recommended and for a stronger yellow colour use more than the usual 150% Natural dyestuff to fibre

Flower heads alone give a bright yellow, leaves and stalks a green colour.

An Alum mordant is recommended for all protein fibres, while a Tannin Alum mix is recommended for all cellulose fibres.

Iron & Copper modifiers will give shades of green.

The picture shows wool which has been mordanted with alum, then dyed with chamomile flowers.

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.
