This Direct Dye Kit was made to inspire you to create with the harvest from the earth. I have been gathering plants to dye for my own work and wanted to share the bounty with you. Inside you will find everything needed to get started working with natural dyes. The color palette are the shades of purple, pink, charcoal, and warm tea tones. With this technique they are mainly coaxed from the plants by using little water and heat combined with time. The results are magical! Inside you will find:

Hollyhock .5 oz Roses 1 oz Tea Blend 1 oz Ferrous Sulfate .5 oz Aluminum Sulfate .5 oz Iron washers 2 Pair of wood clamp boards Cotton and silk samples 2 yards cotton thread Undyed cotton / hemp or silk altar cloth Undyed upcycled pouch Instruction booklet

There is enough dye material to dye several yards of fabric beyond the project enclosed. The Altar cloth is a silk haboti and measures 28 inches square. Or you can choose the organic hemp / cotton option. The ends are machine hemmed with a small 1/4 inch rolled hem. Silk is my personal favorite because it feels great and takes the dye so good. I am also offering an option to not have a finished project but only the sample fabrics. There is also a bonus undyed pouch in which everything is packed that you can dye with plus two yards of cotton thread that is wound around the pouch. You may decide to dye the thread and use for your projects such as embroidery. The pouch is made with upcycled table cloths so please understand there may be signs of use. This kit contains plants and minerals that are non toxic and safe to work with children starting about 8 years old with an adult. Please wear gloves if you have skin sensitivities All the packaging is compostable and recyclable.
