Salt for dyeing is easy to come by and fairly inexpensive. There is non-iodized table salt, water softener salt, kosher salt, rock salt - the list goes on.
What is not easy to come by is a salt that dissolves instantly! We get asked all of the time if there is something easier to use. Well, there is. We have access to powdered salt in bulk. The consistency is kind of like powdered sugar. Add it to your dye-bath and it dissolves with barely a stir or agitation. Voila!
Salt is cheap, shipping is not, and that is why we have never heretofore offered salt for sale. But folks have asked, and it is selling, so we are now offering it to you in 5 lb. bags and 25 lb. boxes. One pound is about 9 cups or so. It is more expensive than regular salt, but we have found it totally worth it when dyeing - a big time saver. Now you can decide.
Ingredients: Non-iodized micro-sized 66 mesh fine salt (NaCl) plus Tricalcium Phosphate as an anti-caking agent. *Note - exposure to any moisture whatsoever during storage will cake it anyway, but it will still dissolve fairly fast if you break it up, it's just harder to measure.
