How much dye will I need?

The approximate quantities of dye required will depend on the dry weight of the fibre and the shade strength required.

Here's our quick start, 1 pot, 1 colour method:

Dry fibre weight Pastel shade
per 100 grams 3g (1 heaped tsp)
  1. Thoroughly dissolve the required amount of dye crystals in enough hot water to make a dye solution.
  2. Add this dye solution to the dye bath & stir.
  3. Add the pre soaked fibre
  4. Raise the temperature slowly
  5. Simmer for 30 minutes
  6. Allow to cool before rinsing
  7. Spin or hang dry.

The addition of chemicals is not normally necessary (in very hard water areas a little white vinegar or citric acid can help). The dyes are safe to use providing a few basic safety in use rules are observed.
