This Natural Dye produces tan colours, no mordant is required as it is a substantive dye, but it does extend the life of the colour as does leaving the leaves in the dye bath with the fibres while dyeing.
Best to soak the leaves for 24 hours, bring to a simmer for an hour. Add the fibres and gently simmer for 3 hours. Allow the fibres to cool in the dye overnight.
In the image below, the wool skein has been treated with (from top to bottom) Alum, Citric Acid, Ammonia, Copper Sulphate, Iron (Ferrous Sulphate).
