Aluminium acetate mordant is used to fix (mordant) natural dyes (except indigo & woad) to natural fibres. It is a mordant for cellulose (plant) fibres and is easy to use and reliable.
With aluminium acetate mordanting is a one-step process. There is no need to ‘double mordant with alum-tannin’. Can be used for both hot and cold mordanting.
Like alum, it is refined from bauxite.
Please mordant at 5g per 100g dry weight of fibre.
