Fibre Reactive dyes, also known as Procion MX dyes, will colour cellulose fibres including cotton, linen and viscose but can also be used effectively on silk. They are a cold water dye and therefore suitable for Batik and resist techniques. The Fibrecrafts procion dyes are available in 23 colours in pots of 50g (please note: Cobalt Blue, 20g and Cerulean Blue, 25g are the same price). With careful mixing and degrees of concentration and dilution they extend the range of tones and tints available to cover the complete spectrum of hues.
Fibre reactive dyes can be kept almost indefinitely as powders in an airtight container. However, under adverse conditions, such as heat and light, they can lose some reactivity and wash fastness. As a solution, the dyes can be kept in the fridge for up to 14 days.
Typically the quantities of dye range from 0.5gm to 100gm of dry material for pale shades and and 4.0gm per 100gm for deep shades. Learn more about Procion MX dyes and see our dye recipe
Soda ash and salt are required for setting the dyes
