Quebracho Red 50g

The Quebracho tree (Schinopsis quebracho-colorado), bark to heartwood, has a distinctive red coloration, and the wood is quite heavy and extremely hard. It is quite slow growing, and therefore is harvested selectively from tree farms that participate in reforestation efforts. Quebracho has a long history as a tanning agent and as a dye.

It is most suitable for dyeing cellulose fibers, but also performs well on silks, and yields a lovely pinkish peach to brown rose color. Try using alum acetate as a mordant with wool.

50g Quebracho Red extract will dye 500g fibre to a dark shade.
