It is safe to let you know now that I was not excited about this dye. It has been my experience that "safer, greener" dyes leave a lot to be desired. Usually they have duller colors, harden the fiber and have no depth of color. It is just the opposite with these. They are bright, shiny, and my alpaca is as soft as when I started.

I work with a non-profit organization called Cross Village Rug Works in northern Michigan. We have a multi-faceted mission, parts of which are to have yarn milled from area fiber farmers' fleece and dye it ourselves for use in hand-crafted textiles, and to preserve our natural surroundings. We are right on the shore of Lake Michigan and the choice of dyes for this process was a careful one; we needed a brand that is eco-friendly as well as able to be mixed to create a wide range of colors. We are so excited to have found your Greener Shades dyes - they suit all of our needs perfectly. We are in the process of creating a color library that is as gorgeous as it is functional, and we are safe in the knowledge that we are not harming our pristine surroundings.

I sampled Ruby Red, River Blue, and Sunshine Yellow by hydrating each dye to a medium dilution -- what I call "1 DOS." Estimating the 1/2 ounce envelopes at approximately 15 grams, I put them in solution with 1485 mls of water, almost 1 1/2 litres. We can consider this approximate, weighing and measuring being what they are, though I am pretty consistent in my measuring, and careful.
