Soy milk as a mordant for cellulose yarns

Louise Yale

Anyone use this on scoured cellulose yarns?

I have used soy milk on cellulose yarns - particularly with warp painting and iron oxides.  Also with indigo.  It is a binder, not a mordant so the process is a little different than using a mordant.  I would suggest you look at John Marshall's www site for more info.
