MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS
I haven't actually tried the dyes yet but they look great and I loved the Japanese fabric in which they were wrapped. I did e-mail the kit supplier because I didn't know how much water to combine with the dyes in the dye vat--the instructions didn't specify and I am a novice. They very quickly replied and very kindly explained to me that it doesn't matter as long as the fabric to be dyed moves freely in the dye solution. Now as soon as I decide which dye I want to try first and order several more habotai scarves I will start experimenting with them.
