Shibori Indigo Dye Kit Review - see what is inside this cheap kit, that dyes up to 15 shirts!

Sometimes ordering craft supplies blindly offline can turn out poorly but I really love this shibori indigo dye kit from Jacquard! I’ve used it several times over the past few years and had consistent results so I feel good about recommending it, after doing two separate projects this summer I decided to invite a few blogging friends for a whole week of shibori dye projects. I’m going to start off with a review of the kit since I love it so much, if you order one today you’ll be ready to experiment with indigo by the weekend!

This kit by Jacquard is the best! Under $10* on Amazon and sold in stores at Jo-Ann Fabrics, it is simple to use on top of being cheap. The description says it is a “mini” kit but it dyes a ton of fabric – over 15 t-shirts or 15 yards of fabric.

This is everything you get in the box; to actually dye you’ll need a bucket/container with a lid and something to stir it with. I’d recommend reading through all the instructions before you get started! In addition to the actual directions, there is a bit about indigo dye itself and about shibori dye techniques. If you want to read ahead, you can get some background on the Japanese art of shibori here. If you have read this far and decided wearing gloves means too much mess, check out the shibori print fabric lines from Moda*!

Shibori Indigo Dye Kit Review - see what is inside this cheap kit, that dyes up to 15 shirts! Shibori tie dye kits make it simple and easy to experiment with natural indigo dye.

Several years ago, I dyed (and sewed two of the shirts) matching family shirts for a friend! Seems so long ago.

 

I have all my other indigo shibori projects in one post here, get excited and try it!

Order your own kit* and get creative!

I checked this out on Amazon. "Dye bath lasts for several weeks," says the product description. ??? Does this mean that on week 16 it's blue socks and underwear from then on? Does the kit include some sort of mordant to make the dye colorfast?? (BTW, your blog is my little Tuesday treat!)

Oh gosh no! The dye bath lasting for a few weeks means if you make the dye bath in a bucket, use it to dye 1 thing, you can cover it up and then use it again 2 weeks later. The dye includes a mordant and after the initial rinse/wash I've never had any issues with dye running! Let me know if that makes sense :) and thanks for the kind words!! That is so lovely to hear.

All looks great. I love how the magic happens when you reveal what it made the design. Everyone on your post did a wonderful job.

That looks like a lot of fun. I love the blues from indigo. I am glad they provided gloves. Contrary to belief, natural does not necessarily mean safe)
