Chestnut Extract 1oz
Chestnut Extract - Chestnut trees grow in many parts of the world and contain a great source of tannin. They dye a warm brown color. This dye is also well known for it’s ability to dye silk black with the addition of logwood and an iron mordant. Dyeing:
Mordanting: use alum mordant at 15% WOF for both protein and cellulose fibers (there is enough tannin in chestnut so mordanting with tannin may not required).
Dyeing: Use extract on mordanted fiber at 5-10% WOF.
