Nylon Rope is mottled, why?
  • I was trying to dye nylon rope chartreuse, I thought I followed all the directions correctly. The rope says is 100% nylon on the spool. It looked great coming out of the dye bath but after washing the color is mottled. I used 1/2 oz of dye, 1.8 lbs of pre-washed rope, 4 gallons water, 1/2 cup vinegar which I added before adding the rope, cooked it 38 minutes, everything was great.... Any ideas on what went wrong? Thanks so much! Brenda
