This was a great way to start learning how to dye fiber. I used it to dye wool for spinning yarn and I’m thrilled with the outcome. My only criticism is that the directions for wool did not stress enough how carefully it needs to be handled to prevent felting. After felting a first batch, I kept the temp below 180 degrees F and handled the wool as softly and infrequently as possible. I also made sure to not subject the wool to any large shifts in temperature when rinsing, etc.... It would have been helpful for a novice to see these hints in the instructions. Otherwise, this was a great beginning kit.
