Brazilwood Extract

(1 customer review)


Almost out of stock — see our “Padauk” for another red heartwood dye.

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

100% natural water extract of Palo de Brazil, a non-endangered species of Brazilwood from Mexico, (not the endangered Quebracho of Brazil).

See instructions for using this dye here.

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.

1 review for Brazilwood Extract


    I’m dyeing about 2 yards of silk charmeuse with about 2 tablespoons of the extract and alum—I want a deeply saturated length of silk. At first the color looks quite orange, a pretty orange, but I am looking for red or magenta. I add about a tablespoon of calcium citrate to the acidic New York City water I use and voila! The fabric turns a rich magenta. The extract is very water soluble, easy to mix and I am very pleased with the results, this color has not been achieved in my natural dye world as of yet, so I’ll def be buying more.
