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.

You will need to keep a separate pan for dyeing which MUST NOT be used for cooking food.

Using these kits you can dye many different colours by dip-dyeing, overdyeing, or modifying the colour after dyeing with ingredients from your kitchen cupboard. Experience the joy of natural dyeing or give a gift which will entertain and educate!
