You all rock! Not only are the dyes great, but your service and responsiveness was super! You saved my project, despite the USPS. My yarn is exactly as I wanted and I promise to send a o completed project picture when I am done. Thanks again!
I love the color variety and ease of these dye tinctures. The color looks great on all of my fiber varieties, and the citric acid is a pleasant alternative to the acidic scent of vinegar. I like the solid- semi-solid results I get which add interest and texture to my knitting projects.
These wool tincture packs are easy to use and fun! It makes dying a lot easier and takes out a lot of the guess work and mess. I have had a lot of fun using these packs. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more!!!
This has to be the easiest way to dye fiber ever. My home is not set up to do fiber dyeing the traditional way. This approach is safe, so easy and can be done in less than an hour, start to finish. And the colors are perfect. This is not my first or second purchase. I’ll definitely be back for more.
I’ve used Abundant Earth Fibers dyes to dye a couple of pounds of fiber I had purchased over the years. It was all natural fiber…beige and white, mostly, Some of the hanks were white merino and silk. Dyeing fiber used to be a big deal with lots of potential mess involved. Not with this approach. All the dyeing takes place in a glass liter jar with hot water, dye tea bag, and tea bag of citric acid. And the colors are perfect. When I dump out the water, it is just a out clear. A quick rinse and I’m done. It’s absolutely the best method ever. Oh and great colors too.
I’ve been dying and spinning wool for many years but when we moved to Georgia my house really wasn’t set up for a dedicated space in which to dye fiber. So, I haven’t dyed anything except at workshops for years. And then I saw a demo on the Maker’s Mercantile site of your dyes and how they work. I ordered the kit and tried it out this morning with some merino/silk roving. I chose the stellar jay colorway because blues can be hard to set. I got everything ready and started the process of actual dyeing and was finished…no problems, no trauma…in 20 minutes. I’m absolutely thrilled to have found your company. I’ll definitely be back again and again. Amazing!
Purchased this to give dyeing a try the easy way. And it really was easy!
Wonderful and clear instructions step by step to dyeing your own yarn.
I chose Moss and my yarn turned out beautiful. Will definitely do it again!
Dyeing my wool was intimidating, but using the tinctures helped make the process easy. I love how the colors came out, though they weren't quite what I expected. I dyed several hanks of yarn, and some fleece. The yarn had some variation in color, which I’m pretty sure came from lack of experience. A bonus, though, was dyeing some fleece in the dye bath after I pulled the yarn out—it produced some beautiful silver grey locks. I found using the jar technique worked for yarn, but was awkward for fleece. I used an electric roasting pan with a little more water to dye locks instead.
