Osage Orange Sawdust - consists of the shredded wood of the tree Maclura Pomifera. Osage contains a yellow dye similar to Fustic and black oak and yields clear true yellows to soft yellow greens that have a high light and washfastness. It yields good depth of shade at 15-25% wof.
Osage grows throughout the south and central United States. The tree was originally planted to help with wind erosion, to build fences, and the hardwood was used to make wagon wheels. Osage has overgrown many areas and is being cut down for firewood. Our supplier rescues these logs and chips them for us or alternatively soaks them in water and through a solar process extracts the liquid concentrate.
