Weld (Reseda luteola) gives us the most solid yellow of natural origin. For this reason, it is an iconic plant and, alongside Madder and Indigo, is used for thousands of years in Natural Dyeing.
In our shop, we have dried plants grown by Saber Fazer in partnership with an organic farm. These plants are of a Portuguese weld variety, well adapted to our climate. They are harvested in the summer when they are at the peak of dye production, selected, dried, cut and packaged by us.
Each bag includes a mix of flowers, leaves and stems. All parts must be used for dyeing.
100gr dried plants should dye about 300gr of fiber to obtain a bright yellow.
We regularly use the plants grown by us in our dyeing workshops, so we know firsthand that this weld produces clear and intense yellows.
It can be used to dye the very well-known yellow from weld or over-dyed with indigo to produce the classic "Lincoln green." To make the color stand out, at the end, it is recommended to alkalize the fibers a little.
