Dyers Chamomile

Dyers Chamomile (Anthemis tinctoria), gives a soft warm yellow and with ammonia a rich almost golden yellow. Adding iron gives a wonderful soft green. Dyers Chamomile is a nice dye to use to demonstrate with as the colour pours out almost as soon as you put the flower heads in water.

 

Nothing artificial is added to the garden and the flowers have been dried.

Update.9th August.  We are still picking na drying dyers Chamomile but now. have enough now to put it back in stock

UPdate. 21st July 2021 . This years crop of Dyers Chamomile  is currently being picked and dried so should be back in stock in a couple of weeks .  Sadly the price has to go up a little as all our expenses are and I pay a fair price for the crop which comes from  garden of Enys Davies at Gwynynog in Denbigh North Wales.  It is still a very good value.  It is grown without the use of chemicals of any sort and dried naturally in Enys’s and my home.

Update : June 2021 Dyers Chamomile is now out of stock till the 2021 crop is picked and dried in about 6 -8 weeks time

 

The 2020 crop of Dyers Chamomile is  now mostly in some is being picked and dried . The colour is as ever a beautiful rich dye but combination of a drought in May and heavy rain in July and August means there is about half of last years crop.

Dyers Chamomile (Anthemis tinctoria) is used in Turkish carpets and is lightfast, slightly less so than weld but still excellent.

The colour is a rich golden yellow and with iron gives a lush olive green.
