Dye Drop FOUR - Blankets & Sheets
These beautiful sherbet colored pieces have been dyed with w mix of organic madder root and weld! Madder root is one of the oldest dye pigments, used as far back as 1500 B.C. Cloth dyed with madder root pigment was found in the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun and in the ruins of Pompeii and ancient Corinth. Weld is an ancient dye plant. It was notably used to dye the robes of the Vestal Virgins in Roman times. When over-dyed with woad (another dye material), it produces Lincoln Green, which is supposed to have been used to dye the clothes worn by Robin Hood and his band in the 13th century.
