Natural Dyeing Kits from £21

| /
Dyeing kits for you to experience the wonders of natural dyeing for yourself. Available in Large or Small, with a choice of two colour combinations for the small kits. The yarn has been mordanted in Alum which greatly improves the brightness and colourfast quality of the dyed yarn; it involves immersing the yarn in a solution of metallic salts beforehand, but to make it easier we have done this bit for you. All the dyes are in dried form.
