This kit provides enough aluminum acetate and calcium carbonate to prepare 2 yards (around 300 grams) worth of fabric for natural dyeing.
Mordanting is a necessary step of natural dyeing. Without the use of mordant, natural color will not fully bind with the fabric resulting in colors fading in sunlight and washing. If you want to dye more than 6 fat quarters, increase the quantity. For example, if you purchase a quantity of 2, the amount of aluminum acetate and calcium carbonate would mordant 12 fat quarters.
