Any newbie - any hints on dying cotton string (aka kitchen twine)?
  • Hi all,

    I have a cone of cotton kitchen twine that I will be separating into skeins and dying with Procion MX - a first-time experiment

    Does anyone have great hints, tips, tricks, etc. dying for this particular medium - how to tie the skeins, how to pre-wash, etc.?

    And, I have very hard water - anything special I should do to the dye bath, or will this make no difference?

    All help will be greatly appreciated!
