Natural Plant Dyeing With Dandelion Flowers

Dandelion flowers make an excellent yellow. You can dye fabrics like cotton, flax, wool and hemp with dandelion flower.

Dandelion (Taraxacum) is a common plant, a weed to some. If you use alum as a mordant dandelion yields a soft yellow color. If you use tin as your mordant you may get a deeper yellow.

On the other hand dandelion roots create a brown or red brown colour.
