Dyeing white linen
  • Hi!
    Iwant to dye a white double layered linen sundress and get a medium cocoa color. Any suggestions as to which dye? which color(s) to use for the best result?
    Thank you,
    VivianE
  • To dye linen, you should use a fiber reactive dye such as Procion MX.

    Warning: the dress is almost certainly sewn together with polyester thread, which won't take the same type of dye that linen will. Do you want a cocoa brown dress with white seams?

    Dear Vivian,

    I'm curious to see how your sundress came out. Is your sundress by any chance an Eileen Fisher? I have what sounds like the same thing, and I'd like to dye mine black!

    Thanks,
    Linda
