Myrobalan Powder: Myrobalan powder is not just used for dyeing but is also used in the mordant procedure, giving out a light yellow shade when applied.
It is an essential tannin for use on cotton in India and Southeast Asia due to the light warm colour it imparts to the cloth.
In addition, Myrobalan is a good foundation for overdyeing.
Myrobalan consists of ground nuts of the Terminalia Chebula tree.
Dyeing: Use indigo extract at approximately 20 to 60% to the weight of the fabric.
For rich colour use more percentage, as the results may vary as per percentage used of dyeing extract and the fabric composition.
