Indigo Powder - Pre-Reduced

Indigo Powder - Pre-Reduced - Hands Craft Store christchurch
Price: $9.90

This specially formulated indigo is already 60% reduced; therefore it allows you to use Thiourea Dioxide (spectralite) and  soda ash instead of lye in the vat. There is no need to paste up the indigo granules because they dissolve easily in water.

Instructions included.

If you are new to natural dyes you will discover that the process of preparing your natural dyes is as much an art as the finished results. As with anything of this nature it is best to make samples and experiment first.

For a great recipe book, we recommend two books, either The Ashford Book of Dyeing or Colours From Nature: A Dyer's Handbook by Jenny Dean.
