Madder Root, Rubia cordifolia, Ground Powder


Price is per ounce.

First quality powdered roots make dyeing with this traditional dye easy because the roots are completely ground to powder. You can use a nylon stocking or a mesh sac tied with string to contain the powder if dyeing yarns. Warm the water and stir the roots for 5-10 mins, add fiber and simmer (between 185-200 degrees max) to develop a dark red. We use 100% on the weight of the goods for deepest cranberry to garnet shades, 50% on cellulose can produce deep rich hues. If your water is soft, add Calcium Carbonate at 2% on the weight of the goods dyed.
