Dye can be used at the Dyer's shop to change the color of cloth or thread. Dye is made by milling certain plants at a Millstone or Quern. Usually all caravans will bring dye for trade too. Importing dye however is only useful if you have a somewhat skilled dyer, otherwise no value is added (see below) and the work wasted. Better buy or grow the 'source' plants if available and mill yourself. Of course the nice colours are a value in themselves, if you don't stuff it all in bins.

Plant Dye Color Value
Dimple cup Dimple Dye Blue 20
Blade weed Emerald Dye Green 20
Hide root Redroot Dye Red 10
Sliver barb Sliver Dye Black 20

Dyeing adds the value of the dye, multiplied with the quality to the thread or cloth. Depending on the dye used and the quality of the dyeing, this can give a nice value boost.

  • silk cloth 34☼
  • silk cloth, dimple dyed 54☼
  • silk cloth, finely colored with dimple dye 94☼ (34+3*20)
