The Fibre Garden : Fibre Reactive Dye
Showing all 1 result
This class of dyes is specifically for using on plant/cellulose fibres such as cotton, linen, hemp or ramie as well as plant-sourced fibres such as viscose, bamboo (also a viscose) rayon and Tencel. It can also be used on silk, since silk will dye with either these or Acid Dyes.
These dyes strike under alkaline conditions so generally Soda Ash is used and very often rather large quantities of regular salt which helps to even out or level the colours. Regular room temperature conditions or warm outdoor weather are perfect, as the dyes do not need to be heated on the stove or steamed for success. Colours can be mixed in different ways to make an endless rainbow of other shades.
