DYE KIT LOGWOOD ~ This Kit contains everything you need to dye your 100g+* of Yarn/Fibre/Fabric.

Logwood dye ranges from greys to purples – strong yet flighty - only the combination of Iron & Alum will convince the purple colour to stay. Logwood was a popular dye plant from the 16th-19th century used for achieving black dye – a difficult colour to achieve naturally.

{Second picture shows Logwood on Softwool, a pure wool yarn - shown is first dip. Every following dip will get paler}

*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:

50g Logwood
10g Alum
5g Iron
