Natural indigo is obtained through a non toxic fermentation of the indigo plant indigofera tinctora. A centuries old traditional dyeing method which yields beautiful patterns and shades of indigo blue.
Note - you will need a 20 litre plastic bucket with lid or non reactive stainless steel pot to use as your vat and a 2 litre container or mason jar to mix your stock solution.
If you plan on dyeing more than once and over several days, I suggest using a non reactive stainless steel pot as vat may need to be revitalised by reheating to 50 degrees and adding a small amount of fructose and lime if needed.
Be sure to follow instruction sheet carefully - Weave and Burrow will not be liable for any damage to person or material through the use or misuse of this product. Please use the dust mask provided when mixing your stock solution as Lime can be irritating to skin and eyes
