Fabric Dyeing Techniques

#TintexDye renews or completely changes the colour of washable fabrics like: cotton, linen, silk, nylon, acetate, rayon, wool, viscose and polyester & acrylic blends (Tintex is not for 100% Polyester or 100% acrylic fabric). The garment laundry care label on the back or side seam has the fabric content.

For the best results the water temperature needs to be very hot. Use water that is heated to 140°F instead of 'hot' tap water. (you can use a kettle to heat the water). Adjust the water temperature for delicate fabric and use the hand dyeing technique.

Brighter colours use double the usual amount of dye for the dry fabric weight. Mix 2 or more colours together to create a custom dye colour. Use less dye for pastels or lighter colours.

Get creative and have fun with your projects!
