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 5-15lbs of dry fibres. For a dark shade, the kit will cover 2.5-5.0lb, for a light or pastel wash of colour, the kit can do up to 15lbs. Makes a great gift!
