We offer 2 different kits in 2 sizes. The iron vat is great because you do not have to keep the vat at higher temperatures, but it does not dye wool well. Or it does, but iron can make wool brittle and break. We just make sure to wash in fabric softener after. Fructose vats are great on all fibers, but do require you to bring to about 140 degrees when dyeing.

The small sized kits with dye a 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of fiber a light to medium shade of blue.
The large kits will dye 2 kg (4.5 lbs) of fiber a dark blue, and there will be enough indigo left in this vat to dye other items a slightly lighter shade, too.
The dye baths will get lighter as you dip more and more.
Each kit comes with ingredients in waxed paper bag, indigo is glass jar, instructions, and marbles.
