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

Madder was a popular dye plant commercially from the 16h-19th century, but was used long before that.  It was one of the only reds available in Europe before the discovery of Cochineal and Lac. Madder yields beautiful oranges, reds and browns.

The colour provided in this kit is for vibrant orange to orange -red/brown and instruction on how to achieve these colours are included.

*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:

100g Madder Roots 
10g Alum
10g Cream of Tartar

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}
