New hand-dyeing kit!

DT Craft and design ready to use food dye knit-mitts kit

At last, we’ve found an alternative for our Kool Aid kits with our new, ready-to-use food colour dyes!

These concentrated colours contain both the dye and the fixer so are ready to use straight out of the pot – just add water and heat!

We’re using synthetic dyes that are normally used for food colourings so they are easy to use in your kitchen.

Our first kit is based on the popular knit-mitts design with 2 balls of lovely, squooshy 100% superwash wool. Plenty to make 2 pairs of cosy mitts and 2 pairs of wristlets.

There are 3 primary colours in the kit and handy dropper bottles you can use to make up your dyes and apply the colour to your yarn. We’ve even included a little funnel so you can transfer the dyes easily into the bottles.

As with all our kits, Debbie has written comprehensive instructions to get you started.

There’s also a simple knitting pattern to make the mitts and the wristlets (with optional, super-cute picot edging!).

With everything you need apart from some basic equipment, our kits make the perfect gift or holiday project. Why not get a group together and have a zoom dyeing session!

PLEASE NOTE: Although the dyes in the kit are based on food colours they also contain the citric acid fixer so are not suitable for consumption or food use.

Spread the love with a share!
