Soak to be dyed fabric, yarn or wool in cold water for at least 20 minutes. Wring out excess water. Fill a large metal pot with water and add dye. Make sure all the dye is dissolved before adding fiber or yarn. Distribute evenly. Add about ¼ cup of vinegar. Heat to 180 F for ½ hour. Vigorous stirring will cause your woolen fiber or yarn to felt, so this is to be avoided. Remove from dye bath and cool to touch. Rinse in water and soap of the same temperature until final rinse water is clear. Sudden temperature changes of the rinse water will result in felting.
Using the washing machine for small amounts of fabric because it is convenient and results are reproducible. The variables in dyeing are temperature, dye concentration, time and amount of fabric. The washing machine maintains consistent time, temperature and agitation so the amount of dye and fabric are the only thing you need to be concerned with.
Set the washing machine to gentle cycle, hot
wash/cool rinse and fill to the lowest level appropriate for the amount of
fabric dyed. Add dye powder and agitate until dissolved. Some dye colors
are more dense than others, so use ½ jar for one pound of fabric. ¼ jar
for ½ pound of fabric, etc. Add clean fiber and agitate two minutes. Add
one cup of vinegar being careful not to pour directly onto fabric. Before
wash cycle is complete, turn machine off and examine fabric. Fabric looks
much darker wet than it does dry. To test your results, dye a scarp of
material with your main load and dry with a hair dryer. At this
point, you may let the machine continue through its cycle or start again;
adding more dye if desired to increase depth of the shade. Wash in cool
water and liquid soap.
