Pomegranate, Ground Extract
Pomegranate, Ground Extract
Ground extract from the rinds of pomegranate fruits, Punica granatum. We list this as a natural dye, but it is sometimes used as a mordant. Use on protein or cellulose fibres. Yields soft yellows to green-yellows or gold. Substantive but pre-mordanting recommended. Use at 15-20% WOF for medium shades. TO USE: soak 24 hours in water to dissolve, stirring occasionally. Place extract and fibre in dyepot and add more water if necessary. Bring to a high simmer for 1 hour. Let fibre cool in dye liquor for at least one more hour or overnight. Light and washfastness: moderate to good.
