Walnut Crystals

Crystals derived somehow or other from, we presume, walnut hulls. Some online sites claim the source is actually peat moss, but we doubt it. Walnut crystals are are widely used by craftsmen as a water-soluble stain for fine furniture, and also by fabric and paper artists. Useful on protein fibres and possibly on cotton and other cellulose fibres, since these no doubt contain a goodly amount of natural tannins. Expect shades of rich brown through tan, depending on the dye solution strength. Substantive but pre-mordanting is recommended. Use at 15-25% weight of fibre for medium shades, more if desired.

TO USE: dissolve crystals in boiling water then add to dye pot. Enter fibre and simmer at 185-200F for 1 to 1.5 hours.

Light and washfastness: good to excellent.

NOTE: Clean pots and utensils well, this dye tends to stain. WEAR GLOVES or your hands will be brown for a week.
