I would absolutely recommend this kit for those new to indigo vat dying.
I bought this as a gift after using it myself because I loved it so much! I love that it’s actually natural indigo and grown in the US. The instructions were really helpful and thorough - it’s easy to do but you have to pay attention to the details. I found the vat worked better when I used a stainless steel pot so I could get it to a good, hot temperature before adding the indigo, lime and iron sulfate. I also let the vat sit for about four hours before dyeing (stirring every half hour to hour or so) and then let the sediment settle for an hour or two before I put my pieces in. The shibori folding patterns are beautiful and my friend adapted the tortoise one for a t-shirt that turned out great. I got a great, dark color after three dips :) Thin cotton prepared for dying (pfd) fabric works especially well for the shibori.
