Dying Cotton Yarn
  • Hi all. I was wondering if I could use the regular Jacquard dyes to dye cotton if I used the soda ash as a mordant. (I'd heard you could use cellulose dyes to dye protein fiber by using an acid mordant, so I thought maybe I could do the opposite for cotton). I was given a MONSTER cone of cotton yarn, and I'd love to dye about 1000 meters for a nice long shawl.
