Can I use 50%cotton/50% polyester tshirts
  • The tie-dye kit states that we use 100% natural fiber shirts. The ones I bought at Michael's are 50%cotton and 50% polyester, white colored. Will they work?
  • Unfortunately, the polyester portion of the fabric won't take the dye. What that means depends on the particular construction of the shirt. If it has alternating threads of polyester and cotton what you will usually get is a much more pastel version of the normally vibrant tie dye colors.

    If you are looking for bright, vibrant colors 100% cotton or other natural fiber is best.

  • thanks for your help Jenny!
