Historians estimate that the average value of the goods a ship could carry in a year in the 17th century was 1000 to 1500 pounds sterling. A single load of 20 tons of logwood was worth about 2000 pounds, more than a whole year’s worth of other goods. Luckily for you, it is now considerably cheaper. Logwood dyes are used for cotton and woollen goods, leather, furs, silk, inks and as a natural red dye for toothpaste and mouthwash.
This logwood dye comes as a very fine powder and is the premium choice. It is perfect for bespoke professional projects as well as having colourful fun at home.
