Sock Hop Dye Kit
Sock Hop is one of the many projects from Kristine's book, The Modern Natural Dyer. This kit is designed to make it easier for you to create Sock Hop. All materials have been pre-measured. Simply use the contents of the jar at each designated step. The instructions for this kit are found The Modern Natural Dyer.
This project is a great first foray into learning how to work with plant-based fibers by dyeing cotton socks. Brighten your winter wardrobe with some vibrant, colorful socks, or dye them for the holidays - they make a great gift!
Plus! You can now watch Kristine's class on Creativebug where she dyes a pair of socks!

This video is a great accompaniment to her book, The Modern Natural Dyer.
