This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Hide root is an above ground crop. It can be acquired by harvesting or by trading. It is milled into redroot dye in order to dye cloth and thread.

Actual redroot dye is brown in color; presumably, this is a bug, since there are rolls of red cloth in the clothier's shop sprite, and Redroot Dye is the only dye to where its powder state color, Brown, is different from the name of its dye: Red. Unfortunately, this means that when applied, it will make any cloth or silk look identical to leather, which can't be dyed, and tends to make it difficult to tell what is and isn't dyed at a glance. Depending on how you feel about that, you may want to avoid using redroot dye at all without a mod that changes this. Its dye value is half of all others by default anyway.
