Learn about the eco friendly process of dyeing with plant dyes whilst creating yourself a gorgeous scarf to keep forever.  This is a fabulous introduction to the world of natural dyeing for yourself or a perfect gift for a fellow creative.


Madder is a rich and complex plant dye that yeilds a wide range of hues from peach and coral, various shades of reds, even purples and brown.


In this package you’ll find ingredients needed to dye the scarf included and up to a further 170 grams of animal fibres i.e. silk or wool of your own. This is an opportunity to find an item in your wardrobe or op shop to upcycle, or dye wool for a knitting project for example.

A hand bound instruction booklet with step by step instructions on preparing fabrics for dyeing including the mordant process and suggestions for further experimentation.

1 blank pure habotai silk scarf

Sachets containing concentrated madder extract (Rubia cordifolia) and mordants.

Fabric remnants to make test swatches.

All contained within an eco-friendly compostable box. Zero plastic!

Access to email support from myself, an experienced natural dyer.
