Get ready for indigo season and save 20% by purchasing an indigo dye bundle rather than the items separately. The 1-2-3 vat is one of our most popular vats for its ease of use and good, strong colors. We are pleased to offer enough indigo to make a medium/dark vat in a 5-gallon bucket that will dip several pounds of goods a rich dark shade. You can experiment with gradation dyeing, shibori, or get into the indigo master groove and dip a piece of fabric 20 times to see how dark a blue you can achieve!
The indigo dye bundle is sized so that you can make a vat of various concentrations using a digital scale and we offer guidance on creating a light, medium or medium-dark vat. There will be leftover ingredients to use in balancing the vat for future dipping.
