help with Alpaca rugs
  • Hello everyone,
    I have two Alpaca rugs (2' x 3.5') that I would love to dye in the washing machine. I've read thru this forum and understand the process to be as follows:
    use top loading machine, wash alpaca rugs in synthrapol, put machine on hottest setting and lowest amount of water to cover saturated rugs, weigh rugs and use appropriate amount of acid dye, saturate rugs in machine for 60 minutes.

    Does this sound right?
    I have a few questions: Do I weigh the rugs before they are saturated? Can I dye both rugs at the same time? Does the dye bath need to cover the rugs in machine?

    I appreciate ALL and ANY advice. Thank you soo much!!
