Dyes add a touch of colour to your world. They can be used to dye clothing like regular leather armour or Harad Robes. Since Public Beta 28 it's also possible to dye your pouches. For more diversity in a building, add stained clay, tiling, glass or carpets!
In addition to the regular ways of obtaining dyes, a lot of materials from Middle-earth can also be crafted into dyes. This includes many of the flowers and clover and even a tree, and alternate materials for black and brown dye.

Note that combining two dyes in a crafting table will yield two parts of the new dye. Two-block high flowers also give two dye. The Dragonblood logs will yield four dye.
Dyeing without dyes
Sounds weird, but it works! Since Public Beta 31 you can obtain a faction-coloured pouch by just putting a dyed or undyed pouch on the desired crafting table withount any dye. The resulting colours are predefined by the Mod for the specific faction and can not be changed. - Now, don't say you don't get anything for free!
Dyeing with gems
Legacy update 36.6 introduces the possibility to give equipment items coloured names by combining them with a gem in an anvil. The gems include those found in ore veins, as well as edhelvir, durnor and gulduril.
