Such a beautiful process and color.

It's a very good kit for both beginners and advanced users, because the results depend on the user's experience and not the materials.

Dying with real indigo is a bit more work than cracking open a box of Rit, but the results are totally worth it. There really isn't another blue the comes close to the color of indigo! The kit comes with some interesting information about the history of indigo dying and different ways of using the dye, and a quick stop at Wikipedia will teach you a bit more if you're interested. I'd recommend making sure you stock up on gloves and buying some more rubber bands, as well as picking up a 5 gallon bucket with lid at your local hardware store. All of those things make the dying a bit less of a mess, but you'll probably end up with bluish hands at the end anyway. This is a great kit for starters, it comes with everything you need, it's very easy to use, and it will dye quite a lot of fabric. We even saved the dye and used it a week after, and while the results weren't as vibrant, they were lovely nonetheless.

I'm knocking a star off because my kit did not produce a "bloom"— a foamy build up on the surface of the vat, which the instructions say to set aside during dying. I even let the vat sit for an hour and a half, and... no bloom. Natural indigo vats always produce blooms, so this was disappointing and killed the experience for me a little bit. I might have gotten an old kit — I noticed the indigo crystals had lumped together in a big chunk in the plastic container...

That said, the indigo bath still worked so I went with it!

I think I got good color with the kit, but since I'm a novice I'm not sure what truly "good" color is! I ran a depth of color experiment where I dipped swatches of canvas multiple times in the vat. I would allow the pieces to oxidize for 5 minutes between dips.

I found the best color range for the following dips:

1 second, 1 dip (light baby blue)
10 seconds, 1 dip
30 seconds, 1 dip
1 minute, 2 dips
1 minute, 4 dips
1 minute, 6 dips (deep blackish navy blue)

The times between did not show any difference in color depth than their surrounding swatches.

It's very important to allow your pieces time outside of the vat to oxidize (at least 5 minutes between dips), or else you will not achieve good depth of color. I found I got faster oxidization by hanging my piece up over an open window — if you have a window over your kitchen sink, this is a perfect spot. The instructions say to allow 15 minutes to oxidize, but I think that's overkill — once the piece turns blue and there is no green left, it's done!

It's important that you *hang* your pieces when they are oxidizing — if the piece is touching anything, the parts that touch anything will not oxidize.

I used this kit to dye t-shirts and scarves. I loved the richness of the indigo dye, and the effects I got from folding, binding, and using rubber bands on the cloth. The results exceeded my expectations.
The cons were the strong smell of the dye and the learning curve I had to go through when using indigo dye for the first time. As with any dying project, it can be a bit messy :) The instructions included in the kit are good and I recommend reading them thoroughly before jumping in.
I plan on buying another kit and will check my local art supply store, Dick Blick, for price comparison. (UPDATE: My local, San Diego, Dick Blick art supply store sells this kit for $10.50)

It comes with pretty detailed instructions that were easy to follow. It was a lot of fun dyeing. The kit comes with plenty of binding supplies (rubber bands and one set of wooden blocks). They can all be reused multiple times if you're careful and take the time to unwrap the rubber bands instead of cutting them. I would recommend getting more binding supplies if you plan on doing large pieces of fabric or multiple pieces of fabric (so that you don't have to wait for the first piece to be unbound and the second piece to be bound, before dyeing the second piece).

Make sure you use a bucket you don't care about. It will be stained blue and smell kind of like pee forever. Just get a $5 Home Depot bucket with a lid. I was able to use my dye even 2 weeks after I first mixed it, but it starts to lose its dyeing strength after the first week.

It's a very good kit for both beginners and advanced users, because the results depend on the user's experience and not the materials. This was my first kit and I am planning on buying another one even though I'm no longer a noob.

I was so surprised and impressed with this little kit (maybe I'm easily pleased?). I first dyed a bunch of old blank silk scarves, and some teeshirts and shoelaces. The color is super rich and yet natural, the process is fascinating. I ordered a second kit to do more, I love it so much.

Not much to say about it really. It's a great kit, complete, simple, easy directions. I was able to make eight Japanese shibori style scarves and invite friends to bring t-shirts and other things to dye. Such a beautiful process and color. So unlike "modern" chemical dyes. Great kit for both beginners and advanced users.
