Our easy to use acid dye starter kit comes with all you need to get started on your hand-dyeing adventures!

Our acid dye starter kit is suitable for hand-dyeing all animal (protein) fibres,  including wool, alpaca, cashmere, silk and nylon. Our Hue & Dye acid dyes require only a mild acid (we include citric acid in the kit) and heat to fix the colour to the fibre.

Our starter kit includes:

  • 3 x 10g pots of Hue & Dye acid dye (your choice of colours from the 12 colours in our range)
  • 125g citric acid
  • Accessory pack of gloves and measuring spoon
  • Comprehensive hand-dyeing instruction booklet written by Debbie Tomkies


The acid dye starter kit contains enough citric acid to fix 1.25kg dry weight of animal-fibre goods. There is plenty of dye in the kit to dye 3kg of yarn or fibre to a medium shade. You can buy extra citric acid or individual dye pots to extend the fun!
