Myrobalan – This dyestuff is the ground nuts from the Terminalia chebula and is a commonly used dye throughout India and grows primarily in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is an upright tree with small oval leaves and lovely bright yellow flowers. Myrobalan has always been used as a primary component for cotton dyeing in India and is often employed as a mordant prior to creating brown and black on cotton fabrics. Myrobalan extract over-dyed with indigo makes a beautiful teal color. Using higher percentages of myrobalan yield a brownish yellow, while the lower percentages yield a light buff color. For a soft butter yellow use at 20-30% WOF, as a tannin mordant use at 15-20% WOF.
