Looking for a non-toxic, heavy-metal free* acid dye that conforms to the Organic Trade Association's standards for Organic Fiber Processing?
Greener Shades(TM) is a non-hazardous, non-chrome, low impact, heavy metal-free acid dye for use on silk, wool, nylon, or any animal fiber. Formulated without the use of hazardous metals, these dyes provides superior light and wash fastness without relying on metal compounds to achieve bright and beautiful colors.
This starter kit contains all the dye, citric acid and instructions you need to dye at least 13 pounds of fiber! The kit contains 1/4 oz jars of all 9 colors - Ruby Red, Flame Red, River Blue, Coral Reef Aqua, Sunset Orange, Sunshine Yellow, Amazon Green and an amazing Midnight Black plus 8 ounces of citric acid and the instructions necessary to dye your choice of fiber/yarn/fabric.
*Coral Reef Aqua uses trace amounts of cobalt to achieve the bright turquoise color.
**As a dye-sensitive individual with a nickel allergy, I can confirm that these dyes are great for individuals with dye sensitivities or heavy metal allergies.
