The shade you achieve will depend on 3 things:

 

1. FABRIC TYPE

• Cotton, linen & viscose will dye to full shade.

• Polyester/cotton & polyester/viscose mixes (aka 'polyester mixes') will dye to lighter shade.

• Do not machine dye wool, silk, polyester, acrylic, nylon & fabric with special finishes e.g. ‘dry clean only'.

 

2. FABRIC AMOUNT

• One pack will dye up to 600g of fabric (e.g. jeans, bath towel, double sheet) to the full shade & up to 1.2kg

  of fabric to a lighter shade.

• Multiple packs will dye larger amounts to full shade, e.g. 2 packs for 1200g (e.g. double duvet) or 4 packs for  

  2kg (e.g. curtains).

 

3. ORIGINAL FABRIC COLOUR

• You can change one strong colour to another (or dye it to a lighter shade) by using DYLON PRE-DYE which

  lightens before you dye, ready for colour change.

• Otherwise, colour mixing rules apply, e.g. blue dye on red fabric gives purple.

• Patterned fabric will often still show through.

 

HELPFUL HINTS:

• Don’t dye more than half machine’s maximum load to avoid crowding which will give patchy results.

• Don’t use more than five packs of dye at once.

• Dyeing may not cover stains, faded areas or bleach marks. Polyester stitching will not dye.

• After dyeing, wash separately or with similar colours for first two washes to remove any excess dye.
