Household salt is not included in the kit but is needed for
the jug dyeing methods.
None of the methods described need boiling water and great
results are achievable by complete beginners.
Procion MX fibre-reactive cold water dyes are the best dyes
available for all cellulose fibres (Plant fibres) including
cotton, rayon, linen, hemp, flax, paper, reeds and wood. The
colours are very concentrated and are all intermixable so you
can easily create your own range of colours.
This new kit includes info on simple ways to calculate yarn and
chemical weights without scales and includes a pack of sample
measuring straws which will be easy for anyone to copy.
Refills for any of the items are available from us.
This would make an original present for anyone interested in
craft and embroidery.
