Fair Trade & Organic. COLOR | It dyes in gorgeously rich shades of pinks, magentas, reds and purples. USE | This is a very potent dyestuff. 20 grams will dye a varied quantity of items, dependent on the weight of those items and what shade of color you are looking for (dark, medium, lighter tones). To achieve a rich, dark color, use approximately 5-10% the weight of the dry fabric. HISTORY | Cochineal has been used to dye textiles for thousands of years, and more recently (in the last few centuries) it's been used to make those bright, radiant pinks and reds in make-up, and to color foods. ---------------------- NATURAL DYE FAQ ---------------------- * What can be dyed? Natural Dyes only adhere long-term to Natural Fibers. Natural Fibers include, but are not limited to: silk, linen, cotton, flax, hemp, ramie, rayon, bamboo, wool, mohair, alpaca, cashmere, etc. * Do I need anything else? To ensure long-lasting color results, Mordants are a must with each of these Natural Dyes. * Will my color be exactly as pictured? Your color results will be determined by how you approach the Natural Dye process (e.g. as in, what minerals are present in the water you use, what temperatures you heat to, which mordant you use, what type of metal pot you choose to mordant and dye in, what fiber type you're dying, etc.). Results vary widely. -------------- NEW!
