Beautiful for clothes, wall hangings and needlework. It is an especially beautiful color for evening dress, because the tone of the red deepens in evening and indoor light, but is not fast to sunlight.

Clear Christmas reds to garnet deep red with alum; pink with tin. Darker tones with addition of Chrome, Copper and/or Iron mordants.

This fine sawdust needs to be soaked overnight to develop the color. Also ammonia (household grade), chalk or a little washing soda needs to be added if your water is acid, as a too acid bath dyes an orange, not a red. This "indicator" effect of changing hue with acid or alkali can be used to nice effect artistically, variegating the red into flames of pure fire.

100% Eco harvest and 100% recycled product (the sawdust from violin bow manufacturing).
