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 have been doing tie dye for years. I really did not expect much from a "kit," but I thought it would at least demonstrate the potential of indigo dying. True to the claim, it yielded five tee shirts and several pair of underwear. I was experimenting with shibori techniques and got really good results. I actually sold two shirts from this first batch. The remaining clothing from this batch has gone through several washings with no apparent fading or bleeding. It was surprisingly easy to get good results. Many people claim indigo is smelly; I don't mind it much. It is like manure applied to a garden or the smell of fermenting beer. (For some reason one of my cats actually enjoys rolling in the splashed dye, thus we have a druid cat.) Unlike fiber reactive dye, clean up is a snap and the indigo dying process consumes only a fraction of the water used in fiber reactive dye.
One thing the instructions do not make clear. For dark color it is best to let the color "cure" overnight and wash in hot water with four cups of salt added.

Absolutely loved this set! I've been wanting to try Indigo dying for a long time, my husband bought this kit for my birthday! All I can say is LOVE!
The package comes with everything you need but a bucket to create the dye in. It had instructions on the different patterns to dye and the history behind the patterns and indigo.
I used half of the dye, soda ash, and reducing agent and it all still turned out beautiful! Not going to lie, anything in my closet that was white went into that indigo vat! Can't wait to do it again with some friends!

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.
