osage orange

Osage Orange is one of our most cheerful dyes.  Osage comes from The Osage tree and is harvested from Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas.  Osage was one of the dyes used to make khaki colored uniforms during WWI and was originally planted to protect the wheat fields from wind.  It generates many shades of yellow from soft pastels, to bright golds, and always puts a smile on our face.
