Manutex is an alginate based thickener made from kelp which is harvested off the coast of Scotland.

Normal tie dyeing doesn’t require thickening, however when painting with dye, printing or for more detailed work you may want to use Manutex.  Mix a small amount with your liquid dye and it will immediately thicken.  You treat the rest of the dyeing process exactly the same as normal.
