Indigo (Indigofera tinctoria) species are the world's only source of natural, true, colorfast blue. A magical dyestuff that has been used worldwide as a dye since pre-historic times, the culture and wonder surrounding this plant are immense.
Indigo cannot be dyed in the same way as other dyes but must be used to create a "living" vat, which is achieved through a sort of fermentation process.
Please note that the dyed fibers in the photos are not included. They are there to show you what colors you can expect to achieve with the dye.
20g Indigofera tinctoria powder, extracted from the plant, 40g pickling lime (calx), and 60g fructose sugar.
