Our products are are grown in fields, wild harvested, or come from small agricultural producers and are subject to the rhythms of nature. Many of the dyes are seasonal or have limited availability.  In regards to this:  if we we run short on a dye that is included in a kit, we reserve the right to substitute a similar type dye until our supply is replenished.   An example would be if we run out of Osage Orange extract, we would substitute Fustic extract.  Updated instructions are provided with any substitutions.


Our dyes are sold by weight, not by volume.  Please note that 100 grams of liquid dye will be weighed rather than measured in milliliters.

We strive to ship within one to five business days of receiving your order, and will notify you of any back orders or delays.  Our normal shipping days are Tuesday through Friday. All orders are shipped via US Postal Service (USPS) Parcel Post or United Parcel Service (UPS) Ground.   Please let us know when you place your order if you have any special shipping requests.


If a product is out of stock, we will email you and ask if you would like us to ship the order without the backordered product and ship the backordered product later.

We ship internationally to most countries via USPS Priority Mail or First Class Mail.  First Class Mail is used for shipments 4 pounds (1.8 kg) and under and can take 14 business days to reach its destination.    Any package heavier than 4 pounds up to 20 pounds (9 kg) will be sent USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate and should reach you within 6-10 business days.   We make every attempt to ship to you in the most cost effective and expedient manner and may choose to repackage our kits without their cardboard box as this saves a considerable amount of money with international shipping or ship in multiple flat rate boxes.  Please contact us if you have any questions about international shipping.
