Tannin Iron Exploration Kit


This Kit lets you dive into the world of grey. Myrobalan, pomegranate & gallnut are all rich in tannin that reacts with ferrous sulfate to create a variety of different greys. In the photo you can see (from left to right) that gallnut gives a purplish-grey, myrobalan gives a neutral stone-grey and pomegranate gives a greenish-grey. You can get different depths of grey by using anywhere between 0.5% WOF to 4% WOF ferrous sulfate.  

Included is a 225g of myrobalan, 225g pomegranate, 100g gallnut & 100g ferrous sulfate 

Dyeing Instructions:

Fill a bucket with warm/hot water - enough water to cover your fabric.  Stir in 15% wof tannin.  Wet out scarf (you can do some resist of our choice on your scarf before hand) and put it in your tannin bucket.  Move it around and and make sure scarf is fully immersed in the solution for about 15 minutes. In the meantime fill another bucket with warm/hot water and dissolve 0.5%-4% ferrous sulfate (depending on how dark you want your grey - the sample is 3% wof).  Squeeze out your fabric so it is not dripping and put into the ferrous solution.  Move it around and let is sit in the ferrous for 15 minutes.  Rinse in cool water till water runs clear! Voila!

*WOF = weight of fibre (dry weight) 

The value of this kit is $45.00
