Natural Dye Kit - pink, red and yellow - organic wool - dyeing with plant extracts
Learn how to dye wool with natural plant extracts. With this kit you will recieve 3 natural dye extracts: cochineal pink, lac red and weld yellow. Included are clear instructions on how to use them on wool. The dyes are very potent and you will be able to dye more than the wool that is coming with the dye kit (the colors will be lighter with every additional skein of wool). You can see on the pictures which colour results you may achieve. You can mix the colors or overdye one with the other. The kit provides mordants as well as modifiers for you to experiment with the endless possible colors.
Natural dye kit contains: + 300 gr wool + Weld, lac and cochineal extract, each ~ 5 g // 0,18 oz // This plant extract is made in Germany and has GOTS certification. + alum + cream of tartar + washing soda + a piece of copper + a piece of steel wool + dye instructions
You may choose between 3 Hey Mama Wolf yarns: Schafwolle #03, organic (260 m / 100gr, sport weight), Schafwolle #02, organic (400 m /100gr, fingering) or Sockyarn #04, wool and ramie (300 m /100gr, sock yarn).
You will further need a stainless steel pot, some vessel, a scale, vinegar and something to stir. This is not part of the dye kit. All items you will need are listed in the dye instructions.
