This is perfect set for beginner and seasoned indigo dyers! Pre-reduced indigo has been synthesized to be easy-to-use for at-home dyers as the indigo has already been reduced to dissolve in water, without requiring the home dyer to use lye. This kit includes everything you need to dye about 1-3lbs of dry fibres. For a dark shade, the kit will cover 0.5-1lb, for a light or pastel wash of colour, the kit can do up to 3lbs. Makes a great gift!
