Dyeing down jacket (please help)
  • Hello, All.

    I'm new to this forum -- thanks in advance for your help....

    I bought a packet of iDye Poly, which I would like to use to dye a 100% polyester jacket that is filled with down.

    Any advice? Is this a bad idea? Obviously, I don't want to ruin the down but I would like to dye the jacket as it is badly stained.

    Can I simply follow the instructions, should I do something special, or should I refrain?

    Thanks again!
  • I strongly suspect that down will be destroyed by the high temperatures required for dyeing polyester. Maybe you should try a fabric paint, instead, such as Dye-Na-Flow.
