This listing is for 1 PACKET of 20 GRAMS of CUTCH DYE in powder form.
A little of this dye will go a long way. 20 grams will dye a varied quantity of items, dependant on the weight of those items and what shade of color you are looking for (dark, medium, lighter tones).
To achieve a rich, dark color, use approximately 1:2 to 1:1 (weight of Cutch : weight of Dry Fabric). For lighter shades, use less dye.

* What can be dyed?
Natural Dyes only adhere long-term to Natural Fibers. Natural Fibers include, but are not limited to: silk, linen, cotton, flax, hemp, ramie, rayon, bamboo, wool, mohair, alpaca, cashmere, etc.
* Do I need anything else?
To ensure long-lasting color results, Mordants are a must with each of these Natural Dyes. More about their use and two versatile ANINI Mordants can be found at: https://etsy.me/3akrpFo
* Your color results will be determined by how you approach the Natural Dye process (e.g. as in, what minerals are present in the water you use, what temperatures you heat to, which mordant you use, what type of metal pot you choose to mordant and dye in, what fiber type you’re dying, etc.).
* Just to note…this listing does not include directions for how to use mordants or learn the Natural Dye process.
