    Easy to use and gorgeous color

    I used the first Deep Water tincture pack to dye 100gms of Romney/mohair handspun yarn using the dye jar technique as recommended. Beautiful color! The green struck first and after 30+ min there was some blue dye still in the water. I took the yarn out, re-heated the dye water, and popped another 40gm skein in. The initial skeins were a deep slightly bluish green and the last was a medium turquoise blue. For the 2nd dye pack, I heated a larger volume of water and put it in a pre-heated slow cooker. Dyed 200gms of handspun Rambouillet yarn and kept the dye bath on low heat in the slow cooker for an hour. All the dye was taken up by the yarn and the color was a more muted (because of doubling the qty of fiber used) but really beautiful greenish blue. The related colors/shades all work well together - can't wait to weave them up! Guessing that keeping heat on the dye bath for the longer time helped the slower to strike blue get into the fiber equally with the green.

    Wonderful results

    Because I wanted to dye three skeins of different natural colors of Navajo-Churro yarn together to see what would happen, and because I wanted slightly paler colors than Blood Orange would normally give, I deviated from the standard procedure. Dye sets for 2 skeins, water for 3 skeins, all in one large stainless steel pot. There was little difference between the white and the light tan yarns, but the light gray gave a noticeably darker ruby color. I'm so pleased with the results. Lacking a dye facility and being afraid to dye outdoors for wildfire reasons, I love the freedom to dye in the kitchen that these dyes permit.

    Great colors, Easy to Use

    After spending the day before mordanting and dyeing with natural dyes (which I love), it was a pleasure to have such an easy dye day. And the colors are gorgeous. Your dyes filled in a few missing colors. Very pleased with the outcome. And I love your packaging. Charming.

    The only dye I use for my fiber

    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.

    excellent results, beautiful color

    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.

    The best way to dye protein fibers ever

    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.

    unbelievably easy

    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!

    Couldn’t be easier!

    This is the easiest way to dye on your own. Great detailed directions and NO MESS. I chose Malbec and got beautiful results. My next project will be overdyeing with the stunning Strawberry color.

    Easy

    Over dyed a couple of light pink balls of mohair. It was quick and easy with no mess. I now have a deep purple, much better.
