Natural dye extracts

100% natural, straightforward to use and kind to the planet, our range of natural dye extracts allow you to enjoy all the benefits of natural dyeing but, as they are supplied in powder or paste form, there are no leaves or roots to stew, or bugs and barks to grind!

Natural dye extracts are suitable for use with both animal fibres and plant fibres and can be used on yarn, fabric, fleece, tops, felt, silk, mawata caps etc. Natural dye extracts are suitable for use with all natural fibres but not man-made or synthetic yarns and fabrics. Natural dye extracts give an excellent range of fully intermixeable shades and can be used for a wide variety of dyeing techniques, including rainbow dyeing, yarn painting, ikat and tie-dye.

Please note that Indigo extract cannot be used for rainbow dyeing and a vat-dye method should be used. If you have any questions about Indigo dyeing please contact us

Natural dye extracts can be successfully mordanted with alum or aluminium acetate (used in food production). Used on their own or combined with our native plants, they really are an invaluable addition to any natural dyer's dyestuff cupboard.
