Use with Aluminium Potassium Sulphate mordant for all protein fibres.

For cellulose fibres use either
Aluminium Acetate at 5% in a heated mordant bath.
or
Aluminium Lactate at 5% in either a cold or heated mordant bath.

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 results are as follows from left to right.
Alum – no modifier = yellow
Alum + Citric acid = pale yellow
Alum + Ammonia = rich yellow
Alum + Copper = yellow with a slight green tint
Alum + Iron = deeper yellow green
