The ultimate eco-friendly plant dye gift for your family and friends. Delight your senses with this unique experience, suitable for older children and adults of all ages.
Our new MINI kit is a great gift for a teenager (post GCSE blues?),and contains everything you need to dye ONE (1) beautiful pre-made silk scrunchie with plant dyes. Using a steam bundle dye technique we have chosen dyes that are suitable for use in your home kitchen, including lavender and mint to fill your kitchen with the scents of the Mediterranean, and hibiscus to evoke warmer climes.
We provide the kit, all you will need access to is a pan, colander (optional), water and a bit of patience.
The scunchie is made in the UK using pure habotai silk and eco elastic. The silk has been pre-mordanted with alum, which will help the dyes to adhere to the silks, and improve light and colour fastness.
You will need to steam the silks, please take sensible safety precautions around hot water and steam.
