Welcome to my blog! I just got some instant indigo from Paradise Fibers and it is awesome! So easy to set up the indigo vat! And the color is great! Now I am working my little fingers to the bone to make some shibori to dye in this awesome little vat of indigo. I will post some pics of my progress as I work with it.

If you love indigo but are afraid of all the nasty chemicals to set up an indigo vat, the instant indigo is the way to go. I had the vat ready and dyeing within 10 minutes of opening the package. It gave a nice range of values based on time in bath and number of dips. I hope to be a little more scientific in recording results tomorrow but was too excited and just played with the indigo today.
