Re: Dyeing Fabric

Ignore all those other suggestions, the following is from a professional
fiber artist.

Wash fabric t'o remove sizing, starch or other materials used in the
manufacturing process. Use a special detergent called Synthrapol.

Dye the fabric using Procion dyes. They need to be then fixed with a
special fixer.

That is it.

To find out more about this process and to get all your supplies just
call ProChem at 1-800-2BUYDYE. I think they're in Fall River,
Massachusetts. You can even talk directly to the chemists if you have a
specific question. They sell to the fabric industry, but also will sell
to individuals.

Good luck,
Peter Gariepy
