Black Walnut Hulls, Crushed


Coarsely ground dried hulls of Juglans nigra.

Use on protein or cellulose fibres. Yields rich browns and tans. A substantive dye but pre-mordanting recommended for improved lightfast and colourfast qualities. Use at 25-50% WOF for medium shades.

TO USE: soak 24 hours or longer to rehydrate. Simmer at 185-200°F for 1.5 hrs. Cool and strain. Enter fibre and simmer and simmer at 185-200°F for 1 to 1.5 hrs.

Light and washfastness: good to excellent.

NOTE: WEAR GLOVES!! Clean pots and utensils well, this dye tends to stain everything it touches.
