Ground Madder Root– We are now carrying Rubia cordifolia that is finely ground and smells like sweet heaven. First quality ground roots make dyeing with this ancient dye easy as you do not need to chop up the soaked roots – just soak and proceed to dyeing. Our madder is grown in the traditional madder producing regions of the world and yields a beautiful deep yellow-based red. We like to soak the roots, add fiber and simmer at low temperatures to develop the deep rich color. We use 100% on the weight of the goods for deepest cranberry to garnet shades. A small amount of Citric Acid and Calcium Carbonate allow you to get the richest shades from our madder roots. Includes instructions.
- 100 grams of madder root will dye 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of fiber to its darkest shade with multiple exhaust dyebaths for additional colors.
