Ashford dyes, if used correctly, are non-hazardous to humans. They are weak acid dyes that are fixed with only common white vinegar and heat. Fiber, yarn and textiles dyed with the Ashford dyes can be worn against the skin without risk. Ashford is in close co-operation with all their suppliers of dyes to ensure they are safe to use and wear. The dyes comply with the strict EU regulations and the manufacturers confirm that cloth dyed with the Ashford dyes can be certified under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. This standard is the most widely known standard for certification of ecologically-safe clothing. Detailed information can be found under www.oekotex.com. The dyes pose no risk the environment if the dye liquid is neutralised with baking soda before disposal in the waste water system. Full instructions for the safe use and disposal of the dyes are included with the dyes.
This was my first time outside of a class and I was afraid I would dye something besides the yarn. As you can see, not only is the color, overdyed onto "winter blue" bright, but the newspaper and rocks have no color at all. I followed the instruction from the dye kit, not the solo bottle. I am very happy with the result.
