Indigo is the only natural blue dye used by many cultures in unrelated places on every continent. Each culture, each village, each dyer has a unique way of making the magic of indigo work, and there are rituals surrounding the success of the extraction and dye process. Stories unfold about why this vat was successful and another failed.
Our indigo extract is extra-strong, finely powdered and easy to use. This particular indigo is ideal for producing greens when over dyed with any of the yellow dyes, and you can obtain lime green to forest depending on the dye and number of dips.
