100% Cotton Pants, polyester stitching?
  • Hi! I have purchased a pair of khakis (tan) and I wish to dye them a good black. They don't make this style khaki in black and that is why I must dye them myself. I purchased RIT black and followed the instructions, but obviously the result is not very black, and in certain light you can see a blue tint. I am assuming that the stitching on the pants is made of polyester or another synthetic fiber because the stitching did not dye. Are any of your dyes suitable for my needs? I see that the Procion line is great for cotton but is there another that can take care of the cotton and the thread?

    Thanks so much!
  • Hi,
    IDye regular and IDye Poly will dye both fiber types. You would use one of each
