Myrobalan is made from the ground nuts of the Terminalia chebula tree which grows in south China, Sri Lanka, Burma, Nepal and Thailand. Myrobalan can be used both as a dye and a mordant. As a dye, Myrobalan has a light buttery yellow. It is also high in tannin which makes it a good chose to mordant cellulose fibers.

  • Dye
    • Amount: 20-30% WOF
    • Color: Soft buttery yellow
    • A single dip in indigo will result in teal
  • Mordant
    • Myrobalan at 15-20% WOF followed by Alum mordant at 15% WOF for protein and cellulose fibers
  • Dyeing
    • Add myrobalan powder to the dye or mordant bath, bring bath up to 55ºC (130ºF) and then add fiber. Continue heating bath to a high simmer (approximately 83ºC (180ºF)) hold for one hour. Adding iron (2-4% WOF) to the bath will produce soft lichen greens to deep grey-greens.
