Yarns for Dyeing

Yarns for Dyeing

A selection of wool and silk yarns for dyeing with Acid Dyes, Indigo or Natural Dyes.

Before dyeing, it is important to check whether the item is 'Prepared for Dyeing' (PFD) or requires scouring to remove any grease, oil or starch. Run a few droplets of cold water onto the yarn. If they soak in quickly, no scour is necessary. To remove starches, size and oils, add 5mls of Synthrapol (a non-ionic detergent) along with 2-3 litres of water for each 100g of yarn. Stir gently over a 15 min period, and then rinse thoroughly in warm water. It is possible to use household detergent, but the alkaline residue may affect the final colour or wash fastness. Do not rub wool yarn as this will cause it to felt.
