Natural Indigo, US grown - paste form

Regular price $ 38.00

This is a liquid, pasted natural indigo, extracted from plants grown at our Tennessee farms!  Our natural indigo has been featured on Martha Stewart Living and is used by fabulous natural dyers across the country! Use to dye incredible and beautiful blue colors.

This batch of our natural Indigo powder is approximately 13% indigotin and 1-2% indirubin (the good blue and blue-red stuff!) content. Our custom blend natural Indigo paste is made to be a consistent, easily solubilized liquid which easily goes into reduction. Shake before use. 

For regular dyers, we recommend the fermentation vat as explained in Jim Liles' book "The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing." For dyeing dark blues on cotton and other cellulose fibers, we like the ferrous (iron) vat. Thiox vat and hydro vat work as well. 

Thank you for supporting our work to revitalize this once prominent agricultural crop and provide an alternative not only to tobacco growers in Tennessee but an alternative to the imported synthetic indigo used by many indigo dyers.
