dye cocoons without heat
  • thanks for this very helpful forum. I am doing a very large project with silk cocoons and would like to dye them without heat. I do not need brilliant colors as my project is more organic looking and I may very well want to keep them white, gunmetal, and silver. I have removed the worm. I have about 2000 to do! Thank-you, casper
  • Hi there,

    The best way to dye silk without heat would be to use Procion MX colors.
    To keep your colors more muted/less intense simply use less dye.

  • I'll do that now. I am using an old salad spinner to remove excess dye and then just letting them dry under a heat lamp--thank-you for this very helpful forum.
