Dyes, Weavers Stain, and Stencils



Dyes

These dyes are specially formulated to dye reed. They need to be mixed with water to desired strength. Always test dye color before dyeing basket or large amount of reed. For best results dissolve dye in small amount of boiling water before adding rest of water.

JACQUARD DYE
Sadly, these dyes are no longer available from the manufacturer. We only have grass green left.

These dyes are/were terrific! We have successfully dyed: reed, cane, seagrass, pine needles, wood splints, and gourds. The colors are very intense and depending on the material - take almost immediately. We have been using 1 tsp. dye, 1/3 cup vinegar, with 1 qt. water. Heat to hot (not boiling). Dissolve dye in small amount of hot water before adding to dye pot. Dip material into pot to dye.

Depending on the color you wish to achieve:
Reed & Wood Splints - instantly to 2-5 minutes
Seagrass - 2 - 3 minutes
Cane - 1 - 2 minutes
Pine Needles - up to 15 minutes
Gourds - instantly.

There is very little runoff of color with the rinsing.  Let the material cool before giving it a cold water rinse. Rinse until clear, and you should have no bleeding to speak of. You will probably want to adjust the amount of dye to water to get the color you desire. Some of the colors are almost florescent in their intensity. One tsp. dye will do approx. 2 lb. reed. The chemicals in the water you use may affect the dye.
