SFS Shop: Calcium Hydroxide is here!

We’ve introduced a new item to our on our online shop – CalX! Also known as pickling lime, builders lime, hydrated lime, slaked lime, calx or aragonite, calcium hydroxide is used as a base for making a natural indigo vat.


You can now purchase 200g of calcium hydroxide (lime) for only $5.5 for use with your 1-2-3 Organic Indigo Vat (as taught by Michel Garcia). View the item here – CalX.

More information on how to use CalX for your indigo vat can be found in the NDW 1: Colors of Provence film. If you’ve purchased any of the Natural Dye Workshop Films , you have access to our Bonus Notes page on, and can follow our very simple 1-2-3 Organic Indigo Vat recipe, which uses CalX as a base for the vat.
