Natural indigo for dyeing blue

Indigo, the queen of natural dyes. This plant dye gives a blue colour and can be used for dyeing cotton and linen in a pan. Many plants contain indigo but some plant species contain more than others which makes them more efficient. Chemically, the colouring substance is always the same,
This box contains 125 g. which is enough for dyeing 500 to 1000 g. of material, depending on the intensity of the colour you want to obtain. It also contains additives that are necessary for preparing the vat.
Instructions are included in the box.

New packaging

Until recently these dyes were offered as chopped or grinded plant parts, packed in bags or boxes of 50, 250 or 1000 grams. However, the producer is now gradually switching to extracts. Extracts contain a much higher proportion of effective colouring plant parts, so less is needed to obtain the same dyeing results. However, the labels on the packaging still refers to the weights of the old packaging (50 gr, 250 gr or 1000 gr). As a result the actual packaging sometimes weighs less than is indicated on the label. This can cause confusion. However, the smaller content of the new packs has the same dyeing strength as that of the old ones.
