Sale! Last stocks of our original Acid Dyes


Sale – Last stocks of our original acid dyes!

We have a small stock of our original acid milling dye range. The dyes have been tested and work fine. I originally kept them for custom dye jobs and while customers swapped over their recipes to the new range. After convincing myself I’d use them up I’ve finally concluded that this *might* not happen!

So, this is the list of what’s available and, as with the other items in the sale, when it’s gone, it’s gone!
