Dyes gold to khaki.

Darkest shade 7% to weight of fabric, medium shade 3% and light shade 1%.

This dye is high in tannin (19 to 26%), therefore it works particularly well with cotton and other plant fibres but you can also use it to dye wool and silk. You will get yellow fawn when using pomegranate without a mordant and golden yellows with a mordant. With the addition of iron, you will get mossy greens, greys and blacks. You can over-dye it with indigo to make beautiful dark greens. Pomegranate rinds are popular for contact dyeing (ecoprints).

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