HOW TO DYE:
Our natural indigo dye is in powder form and requires a reduction process before it can be used for dyeing. This process involves converting the indigo powder into a soluble form, allowing it to bond with the fibers of the fabric. Unlike other natural dyes, indigo does not require mordanting.
To achieve the best results when dyeing with indigo, we recommend using our indigo dyeing kit, which includes all the necessary substances and detailed instructions for the reduction process. The kit also includes easy-to-follow instructions for achieving the desired color intensity and ensuring that the dye is permanent on the fabric.
