The legendary Saxon Blue is now available to natural dyers. First created in the 1740s, it is an easy and marvelous color – greener than traditional vatted indigo and a great base for teal, aqua, cornflower, periwinkle, lilac and medium value purple.
To use simply measure out the amount of liquid indigo and vinegar and add to the dye pot. Add mordanted or pretreated fiber and heat gently. Enjoy the beautiful blue! For easy color combinations add Liquid Himalayan Rhubarb for green or Liquid Lac for purple. Full instructions included.
50 grams of Saxon Blue will dye about 1.25 pounds of fiber (570 grams) to a very rich blue shade.
