My order was sent out quickly, and I received the seeds exactly as I expected them. If you are purchasing these with dyeing in mind, three packets of seeds yields a light mauve-pink on cotton. There are more economic and colorful dyes out there, but if you are just interested in trying out a heritage dye, it is a fun experiment if you don't have high expectations for the result.
