Description

Dyer’s Broom or Greenweed is a small shrub that originates in the dry woodlands of Europe and has a long history of use for yellows. It contains the same colourant as weld, which is very lightfast. Dyeing: Use extract on mordanted fibre at 7-10% WOF.    All measures in dyeing are based on the weight of material to be dyed. This is known as the Weight Of Fibre (WOF). WOF gives a convenient way to state how much dyestuff is needed for a given shade, regardless of whether the dyer wants to colour a few yarns or several metres of fabric. The weight of dyestuff is expressed asa percentage of WOF.    For example, to dye a medium-red with madder, we would use 50% WOF. Hence, if we had a pound of cotton (450 g) we would need a half-pound (225 g) of madder.^
