Madder Root - Ground

Madder Root - Ground - Hands Craft Store
Price: $5.80

Madder is a beautiful, permanent red dye from the roots of a pretty, viney, low growing herb. Brick Red with alum, bright Orange with tin; Burgundy with chrome; off-Black with iron. Very fast to both washing and light as wells as acids, sweat, baby drool, etc. This is a softer red than Cochineal, Lac or Brazilwood, but is superior in fastness to all other Reds, since it is both light and wash fast.

Dyes pinks, salmons, apricots and dark reds. 


For recipes, we recommend two books, either the Ashford Book of Dyeing or Colours From Nature by Jenny Dean.
