COCHINEAL NATURAL DYE KIT ~ This Kit contains everything you need to dye your 200g+* of Yarn/Fibre/Fabric.

~ One could write a book on Cochineal dye alone – the amount of reds, pinks and purples to be had by this wondrous dye is indeed astounding ~

*We do state 100g/200g depending on recipe on the bags, but you can dye much more than that. Most natural dyes aren't immediately exhausted and you can continue dyeing several more pieces. Each new dip will result in a paler colour. 

**All our packaging is compostable - our plastic bags are made from plant material.


The DYE Kit makes a lovely present too - well packaged, the dyes come in an organic undyed Pull String Bag.
The DYE Kit will come in an extra big Organic Pull String Bag, if you add undyed yarn to your order, but this is optional, of course.

What you will receive in this Kit:

15g Cochineal, 6g Tartaric Acid, 2x 10g Cream of Tartar, 20g Alum, 5g Iron

Full instructions & lots of information 
1 organic undyed Pull String Bag.

{ If you include a skein of yarn in your purchase, we will pack the entire order in a big organic undyed Pull String bag}
