Natural Dye Kit + Good Toddler Tee
Looking for something fun, guilt-free and creative to do? We’ve got a really GOOD project for you. Introducing our natural dye kit, complete with a Good Tee, gives the beginner dyer a perfect introduction into the beauty and wonder of creating color from nature and customizing your own unique toddler t-shirt. The best part about this, is it’s sustainable, a guilt-free project, with minimal environmental impact.
- A toddler t-shirt in any size you need. Included are the ingredients to dye around 3- 4 t-shirts.
- Alum (a food-safe ingredient made of potassium aluminum sulfate) as the mordant (for colorfast), and Gallnut, tannin powder made from the galls formed on oak trees, for pre-mordanting.
- Logwood chips (haematoxylon campechianum), which yield gorgeous soft purples, osage sawdust (maclura pomifera) for yellow, ground madder root (rubia tinctoria) for lovely peachy orange shades, and cochineal (dactylopius coccus) for pink.
Comprehensive instructions in the kit will take you through the step by step process of preparing your fibers and dyeing with these dried dyestuffs.
Please note that the dyed fibers in the photos are not included. They are there to show you what colors you can expect to achieve with the dye.
