Create your own naturally dyed yarn! This kit features a commonly grown flower that is a natural dye powerhouse: marigolds! The marigolds in this kit have the potential to yield a sunny yellow or a light, army green. You can choose your color results based on how long you steep your dye bath: a short extraction for yellow and a 24 hour extraction for green. The marigolds in this kit were grown by Salt of the North Dyes in Northfield, Minnesota. Join a long tradition of dyeing with marigolds and enjoy this relatively colorfast and easy to extract dye. 

This limited edition kit invites you to enjoy the magic that happens when wool fibers are immersed in a rich, natural dye bath. You will learn how take your yarn through each step in the process, from scouring to mordanting to creating a dye bath and dyeing. The easy to follow instructions make this kit is a great introduction to naturally dyeing yarn.

Each kit is packaged in a cotton drawstring bag and includes: 

  • 100 gr/218 yds skein of undyed 4 ply worsted weight Organic Merino yarn
  • alum mordant
  • dye
  • tyvek band to keep your yarn tidy throughout the process
