Paille De Mil

Or African Cochineal, is a substance obtained from Africa. Whether it

has received its name of cochineal from its appearance or origin is not

clear, but it behaves more like galls and sumac than cochineal, though

it does give a kind of red with alumina mordants. The colours it yields

are deficient in brightness, and it has otherwise been reported

unfavourably of.
