Golden Rod (Solidago canadensis) is one of the most lightfast yellow dyes containing the chemical  Quercitin and Iso quercitrin but much of the colour is lost on drying. So I have made a concentrated liquid extract from the plants in my dye garden , tested it by leaving the extract for a year and exposing the dyed fibres to north facing light for one month with excellent result.

200ml of liquid extract will dye 200g  of premordanted wool  and cotton a rich soft yellow with a slight green cast .  Overdyed in indigo it makes a rich green.
