Plant dyeing starter kit / 9 samples + bandana

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This dyeing kit is a curated set of 3 different dye plants to showcase the main properties of botanical colours. You will learn about extracting plant dyes, modifying them, and dyeing fabric.

Every kit contains a piece of pre-mordanted organic cotton for you to run tests on and a pre-mordanted bandana for the main project - choose between organic cotton voile and hemmed silk.

Cut small pieces of the test fabric and experiment with three different dyes: madder, chamomile, and hollyhock. Once you get familiar with the techniques, dye a full piece with plants of your choice. You can use the dyed samples for small sewing projects or patch them together for a bigger piece.

The kit includes printed instructions with photos. I will help you make 9 unique colours out of just 3 dye plants, as well as give ideas for expanding the range of colours even further.

The kit includes:

organic cotton test piece 50 x 50 cm (20 x 20 inch), pre-treated with aluminium mordant
organic cotton OR hemmed silk bandana 50 x 50 cm (20 x 20inch), pre-treated with aluminium mordant
