Sun Dye Kit with Black Walnuts
Next of Kin Studio's Sun Dye Kit is a natural dye kit in the simplest of forms. Sun dyeing utilizes energy from the sun to facilitate the natural dye process.
This kit features black walnuts hand foraged from the California Black Walnut tree (some walnuts pictured below). Black walnuts can create taupe browns of varying intensities.
Please see descriptions below and select either the Sun Dye Kit, Sun Dye Kit with Peace Silk Bracelet or Sun Dye Kit with Mini Yarn Skein.
- Sun Dye Kit: a set of sun dye instructions, one quart size dye jar and a few black walnuts. You provide your own fabric material for dyeing with this option.

- Natural Dye Kit with Mini Yarn Skein: a ready-to-dye, mini-skein of wool yarn and a set of sun dye instructions, one quart size dye jar and a few black walnuts. This is enough yarn to use in a project as an accent color.
