The Purple and Lime Green Pot

The Kit contains all the dyes needed to create rich purples and contrasting lime greens. Watch the colours develop and change over time.

Solar Kits are kilner jars of bejewelled colour filled with natural dyes, fibres and water. The heat, even the mild heat from the sun in North Wales, works its magic over time to dye the fibres the rich subtle colours of natural dyes. Pots are multi-coloured layers so fibres, fabrics or yarns are dyed multi-coloured too. I have been developing this technique for nearly 15 years now and year on year have found the dyes which dye well at low temperatures, and which give exciting colour mixes. All the kits come from this experience.


You will need:

  • 1.8 or 2 litre kilner jar
  • Between 50g and 100g of Wool and Silk fibres, or yarns
  • Old jam jar, or jug (not to be used later for cooking) to dissolve the mordant in.

This kit is not suitable for children under the age of 14. Final colours may vary.
