WHAT IS IT?
This Procion Starter Dye Kit includes everything to get you started on the exciting journey that is dyeing. Procion dyes are cold water dyes and are just what you need to dye vegetable or plant based yarns, fibres and fabrics.
The kit contains full instructions, 10g each of 6 full intermixable MX procion dyes, 300g fixer, urea, thickener, salt, pipettes, a sponge brush, disposable gloves and 250g of 4ply pure cotton so you can start straightaway.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
Dye an incredible 1kg – 5kg of yarn or fabric depending on the strength of colour you require. You can also apply the dyes in a variety of ways to fabric by thickening the dyes and using the sponge brush applicator.
Mix the dyes to create a complete rainbow of shades and dye solid colours or play around with space-dyeing to make your own totally unique colour combinations.
Cold water dyes such as Procion MX dyes are for dyeing cellulose fibres which originate from plants, so use on cotton, linen, hemp, viscose, paper and silk (silk is a bit of a one-off when it comes to dyeing!)
The cotton included in the kit is enough to knit or crochet a sleeveless summer top or wrap and we’ll include links to free online patterns within the kit.
WHY SHOULD I BUY IT?
Rather than shop bought colours mix your own unique colour palette for one-off combinations.
