Use this RIT Textile Dye for dyeing your Piupiu or muka but be aware it does NOT TAKE in a HOT dye on Harakeke/NZ Flax. You can still use this lovely dye for your every day natural fabric dyeing however if you so wish.

We used to use this dye back in the day for all our harakeke dyeing but sadly they changed the formula a few years ago and now it only works in a cold dye (where others such as Teri do not take). So this is the perfect dye for Piupiu dyeing if you do not have access to natural materials for that. The dye will still take on the exposed muka.

I have created a video on how to dye piupiu with this dye that you can find on my youtube channel here
