Fine Merino – Indian Yellow
100% fine 19-micron Merino wool. Beautiful and clean combed top. One of the "classic" colours from ancient times. A useful golden yellow, almost like the Cheesecake we carry in other lines. We looked it up, and Oxford said "a golden yellow originally obtained from the urine of cows that were fed mangos". PRODUCT of ITALY, from Dyeing House Gallery.

Shavings from Chlorophora tinctoria often called Old Fustic. Use on protein or cellulose fibres. Requires a premordant. A classic dye that gives bright yellows through to gold or green, depending on the mordant. Use at 30-50% WOF for medium to strong shades. TO USE: soak in water overnight to several days. Simmer 1 hour in soaking liquid. Cool, strain then simmer premordanted fibre for 30-60 minutes. Temperatures of 155-160°F will give the best yellows. Light and washfastness: good to excellent with a mordant.
