This kits comes with plant materials and a 30" x 30" silk scarf that has been mordanted in Alum so it is ready to grab the color, along with thorough instructions, cotton cord, even a helpful video! The only thing you need is a *nonreactive pot. The instructions will give you a starting point to working with natural dyes and suggestions on how to use what you have in your kitchen or around the neighborhood.
If you'd like a extra prepared pieces to dye to pair with the kit go HERE. Depending on how liberally you use your materials, you should be able to dye 3 pieces. If up-cycling items you have at home, each piece should be mordanted so that it will hold onto natural color.
