Chestnut Extract - Chestnut trees grow in many parts of the world and contain a great source of tannin. They dye a warm brown colour. 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 fibres (there is enough tannin in chestnut so mordanting with tannin may not required).

Dyeing: Use extract on mordanted fiber at 5-10% WOF.
