Introduction and Bamboo Painting Question
  • Greetings from beautiful north Idaho. I am dyeing bamboo yarn for the very first time with some Pro MX dyes. I want to do more of a space dye with at least three colors per skein. I'm confused about the best way to do this. Any suggestions? Thanks, Sheryl
  • Hi Sheryl,

    Lots of different options for you with space dyeing and Procion MX.
    Probably the easiest would be to pre-soak your bamboo in soda ash solution and then lay the skein out on plastic wrap, paint the dye on and cover with plastic wrap. Let the whole beautiful thing batch for 12 - 24 hours and rinse!
    The instructions for mixing dye and soda ash will be the same as that for tie dyeing and you will find them here:http://jacquardproducts.com/assets/jacquard-site/product-pages/dyes/procion-mx/Procion MX Instructions.pdf

    hope this helps
