modal/silk/spandex dying
  • I need to dye several yards of modal/silk/spandex this weekend...any suggestions on the type of dye I should use? Will the ProcionMX dyes work on this blend? Or do I need to use Acid dyes because of the silk? Modal is a cellulose fiber, so I know that's ok with the ProcionMX dyes.
    The belnd is 84 modal/10 silk/6 spandex
    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
  • Both your Modal and the silk will dye with Procion MX when used with soda ash. The spandex, of course, will not dye, but the percentage is so low that you will not notice it.

    You're good to go!
