Lucious Wool for Kilims Continues

Here is another great color to use in Kilim rugs. This is Mocha Chino, a Prochem dye, use 1/4 tsp. over 1/2 yard Dorr natural. It was dyed in a Presto Pot in a dye solution only deep enough to just barely cover the wool. After the initial stir, the wool was only stirred once after the Citric Acid was added. The effect is a wonderful warm brown with tones of gold. Really hard to describe, but really a lovely color.


  1. I love the mocha chino, isn't that just the most fabulous dye to come out of a jar? YUMMY!

  2. Hi Tammy,
    It really amazing.
    I was so surprised when I first used it - gorgeous color!
