Wild Colours - Exciting colours from Natural Dyes

Dyeing with Iron

a) Dyeing with Iron alone

b) Dyeing with Iron and Tannin


a) Dyeing with Iron alone
Dyeing with iron produces buffs, dull yellows and oranges that are very fast to light and washing. To avoid shortening the life of the fibres too much, dye only cotton or linen and use light shades. Fibre dyed with iron, has already been mordanted and could be over dyed to unusual shades with weld, madder and other natural dyes.

You will need:

  • 10 litre plastic bucket
  • 100 grams of scoured cotton, damp
  • 15 grams ferrous sulphate
  • 5 grams soda ash
