Logwood Shavings - come from the heartwood of the Bloodwood Tree (Haematoxylum campechianum) which is found in Mexico, Central America, Colunbia, Venezuela and the Guyanas. Belize grew out of 17th century logging camps. Today Logwood dye is an important source of haematoxylin, used in histology for staining slides.

Requires a mordant (Alum)
Add Iron to make Black
PH sensitive
Ethically harvested
Instructions for use included

How much dye to purchase:
All natural dyeing is based on wog or wof - weight of goods or weight of fabric
Here is the formula for the Logwood Shavings to dye 1 pound of fabric.
For example 1 pound of fabric = 16 ounces or 453.59237 grams

Round up to 500 grams (17.6 ounces)
multiply the % of logwood shavings x the wog/wof

Logwood shavings:
25% by weight of fiber for dark purple (with Alum mordant), dark blue-purple (with Copper mordant), dark grey-charcoal (with Iron mordant)
10-15% by weight of fiber for light purples, medium grays

25% Logwood Shavings x 500 grams of fabric = 125 grams or 4.40 ounces of Logwood Shavings

10% Logwood Shavings x 500 grams of fabric = 50 grams or 1.75 ounces of Logwood Shaving

This listing is for either :

1 oz (28 grams)
4 oz (113 grams)

This logwood is an excellent and efficient dye! Follow the instructions provided with your order, and you will get a lovely royal purple. The instructions also tell you what additives will adjust the color and improve lightfastness.
