Dyeingtofelt said:Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, the fiber is washed and I do use synthrapol. Alpaca is a lanolin/oil free fiber. I am a bit sporadic about checking dyebath temperatures. I will try again and check the temperature (should be 180 degrees) and let it cool overnight in the pot. I really need red and scralet for the holiday season!!Lisa, thanks for the info about wool - (I have not dyed wool) only alpaca since I have a herd of 26!!! I have also dyed mohair and silk with the same dye with great results.Have any of you used the Jacquard iDye fixative?Louise
