Silk Scarf Natural Dyeing Kit
Dye your own silk scarves with this dyeing kit containing natural dyes. We have done the first bit for you and mordanted the scarves in alum, the most commonly used mordant. Mordanting the fabric first produces a better colour and greatly improves the colour- and light-fastness of the dye.
The kit contains:
- two large silk scarves mordanted in alum
- 20 grams of weld (yellow), 5 grams calcium carbonate (chalk for using with weld), 10 grams madder powder (reds and rust brown), 15 grams annatto (golden yellows) and 20 grams walnut husks (browns).
- a piece of muslin for straining the dyestuff
- plus instructions.
These kits are generally prepared to order so please allow up to 10 working days for your order to be processed. If you want it speedily please get in touch and we will do our best to fulfil your requirements.
PLEASE NOTE: You must not use pans which are used for cooking food when dyeing with this kit.
