Natural Fiber Results with Sappanwood
Sappanwood is a botanical natural dye that speaks volumes in bright, intense volumes. Almost immediately, from the moment it touches water, it lends its vibrant red color generously with little hesitation.
Sappanwood gives a slightly richer and darker hue to protein (animal-based) fibers and lighter, gentler hues to cellulose (plant-based) fibers.
Check out the results below for more variations.
