Dyeing Fabrics 1.

w/e 1/03/15

The number businesses prepared to dye anything has dwindled so much over the years that now there's almost no-one in the UK offering this type of service. What's more, the cost of these services are very high and results extremely variable. The main problem for the dyer is in the expectation customers have of what dyeing can be reasonably expected to achieve and what problems may to occur. (We can often get garments and fabrics dyed so if you would like our help please just email us from this link Dyeing;)

However, dyeing can revitalise faded clothes or settees and allow the fashion conscious to use hardly worn garments with last seasons now unfashionable colours. So over the next Four weeks we will run a series of tips on the pitfalls to avoid and methods to employ to successfully dye your own clothes at home. 

Fabrics you can dye:

The fabrics you can dye at home are dependent on the available dyes you can get. The best results for each fabric are achieved using different types of dye, so using the same dye on all fabrics will produce differing results. In reality, the dyes sold to the public are only likely to be of 2 basic types and this restricts what can conceivably be achieved.

Here's a list of the likely results for various fabrics from the dyes you are likely to be able to buy:

Fabric Type of dye Result
Cotton, Linen and Natural Cellulosic Fibres Reactive (Sold as Permanent) Very good bright fast colours that don't run easily when washed
Cotton, Linen and Natural Cellulosic Fibres Direct (Hot or Cold dyes not machine dyes) Hot will get good results and good colour evenness. Colour will run when washed if the temperature of the wash is higher than 40o C.

Cold dyeing is less permanent and will give a less even dye coverage.

Viscose, Rayon, Acetate and other man made fibres. Reactive (Sold as Permanent) Good coverage and evenness. A similar result to natural cellulosics. However the action of the machine is very likely to cause damage to the fabric through distortion or even fraying.
Viscose, Rayon, Acetate and other man made fibres. Direct (Hot or Cold dyes not machine dyes) Hot will give similar results to reactive dyeing but with less chance of fraying the edges if the fabric. All of these weaken in water and especially hot water so damage is very likely.

Cold will give fairly good results and is less likely to damage the fabric.

Silk Reactive (Sold as Permanent) Although the dye coverage of silk may be fairly good the heat and agitation may to cause damage to the fabric. 
Silk Direct (Hot or Cold dyes not machine dyes) Hot normally produces good results but the feel of the silk may be harsher once dyed. Dry cleaning after dyeing may improve the feel of the silk.

Cold again can get good results and may protect the fabric from distortion. If you are dyeing silk it is best to start by cold dyeing.

Wool Reactive (Sold as Permanent) Not recommended
Wool Direct (Hot or Cold dyes not machine dyes) Hot the dye may give good coverage but we see this method as a last resort because the likelyhood of fabric distortion and hence ruining the clothing, is very high.

Cold is the best method of dyeing wool but the colour displayed on the package may not be like the end result.

Next week we'll look at general preparation for successful dyeing.
