This is an easy to use liquid natural dye that creates a beautiful gold or brown on natural fibers. Himalayan Rhubarb is a traditional natural dye from the Himalayan mountains between India and Bhutan. The plant grows in altitudes from 3-5000 meters and yields a deep golden yellow color with an alum mordant. Shifts in pH will create more yellow or nearly brick red colors. The dye is aromatic and earthy smelling and makes a wonderful Bright Olive green when combined with Saxon Blue in the dye pot.
Himalayan Rhubarb works best with wool and protein fibers, and is less intense on cellulose fibers.
