Logwood Purple Extract
Logwood Purple Powdered Extract
Logwood is not particularly lightfast so keep away from bright sunlight
Logwood yields a rich, deep purple which was used as a base or “bottom” for the desirable dark purple and black colours of European fashion and aristocracy. If your water is neutral or acidic, a little soda ash in the dyebath will enrich the purple tone on wool and silk fibres.
The powder produces a gray lavender to blue purple colour
