We were able to obtain a very beautiful variation of lac dye that has us swooning over its rich shade. This extremely strong, refined Premium Lac Extract is the historic red insect dye from Southeast Asia to the Himalayas. The powder is a brilliant red in comparison to our other lac varieties, which are much more purple in appearance. It creates a bright raspberry and fuchsia on both protein and cellulose fibers and is easy to use; no straining required!
25 grams of Premium Lac extract will dye approximately 500- 750 grams of fiber (1.1 to 1.6 lbs.). The remaining dye bath may be used to dye additional fibers.
Classic Lac extract (creates Burgundy to pink and purple)
