low-impact, hand-whipped dyes for protein fibers

For the adventurous fiber person, try my line of hand-whipped Minnesota Series Dyes™. These protein fiber dyes have been prepared in small batches to achieve the finest blending of dye particles. I use an eco-friendly, "minimal impact" chemical dye base as the source of my colors.

Lake Minnetonka Colorway Dyes

The Lake Minnetonka Colorway™ is the first line of colors in the Minnesota Dye Series™. Hand-whipped in small batches, these dyes are finely blended to give you the most accurate color mix and a powder that quickly dissolves in solution. These dyes are easy for beginning dyers to use and of a quality that will please the professional dyer. All you need in addition is a pre-soak detergent (Synthrapol or equal is recommended) and vinegar or citric acid crystals.

The dyes have an eco-friendly, "minimal impact" chemical dye base.

NOTE: These dyes are strictly for protein fibers, such as wool, silk, alpaca, llama, etc.

1 pack will dye 100–300 grams of fiber. More fiber or less dye will result in a lighter color. The darker dye colors typically dye more grams of fiber than the lighter colors.

Your purchase includes the dye pack (or 2 packs if you select that option—must be the same color), instruction sheet (with exclusive online access to information on how to microwave dye and handpaint with the Minnesota Dyes), and a reusable air-and light-tight storage tin.

PRICE: $4 per pack USD (packaged individually in its own storage tin), plus tax (MN residents only) and shipping/handling.

$7 USD for 2 packs of the same colorway (these are packaged together in one storage tin), plus tax (MN residents only) and shipping/handling. Unfortunately, we are unable to package 2 packs of different colors in the same tin.
