Regular price £39.95

This dye kit will allow you to set up a mini vat and be delivered with a hand woven silk/cotton scarf 40 x 160 cms from Northern Thailand. The Indigo supplied is Organic Tamil Indigo from India which gives a really nice strong blue.

 

The kit supplies the ingredients to set up the vat together with a list of the equipment you need and full instructions incorporating some video content.  There will not be any tutor’s live support.

Indigo dye is the dye of the Gods, extracted from a leafy plant grown in Asia, it gives the most wonderful blue dye and superb results on cellulose fabric like cotton, linen, but also silk. 

It takes hard work to produce Indigo dye so we have to feel grateful to be able to use it and the slow motion of the dyeing method with it is very meditative.

 

The Silk/Cotton scarf is hand spun/hand woven in Northern Thailand and will help you create a beautiful piece. You will be able to dye more pieces with your vat and use it for a number of weeks.

 

This is a Hydrosulphate vat using the reduction method.
