Product Details:

Osage Orange

The Osage tree was named after the Osage Indian tribe of Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas. The wood is dense and resistant to rot, which made it the perfect tree to naturalize in the great western prairies, where they were planted in hedgerows to protect the wheat fields from wind erosion. 

Osage was one of the dyes used to make khaki colored uniforms during WWI.

Generates a very bright yellow on wool with an alum and tartar mordant. When osage is over dyed with indigo, it produces deep greens and when iron is added to the dye bath, the color shifts to moss green.
