Does Dyeset Concentrate affect fabric marker lines on silk?
  • I am using green label dyes and fabric marker for my scarf and found that some of the marker lines can be removed from my scarf after using dyeset concentrate. What am I doing wrong?
  • Try applying the fabric marker after you've finished using the dyeset concentrate, or set your green label dyes by steaming instead of using dyeset concentrate, or use black gutta in place of fabric marker.

    Have you tried different brands of fabric marker? Be sure your fabric marker is set before you apply the dyes. Some brands of fabric marker require heat-setting with an iron.
