newbie with wool question
  • Hi there!
    Here's a question that despite scanning through these posts I am unable to answer: Do I HAVE to use the acid dye to dye wool? I am attempting to dabble in dyed wool for my new interest in rug hooking. I have some Procion MX dyes already mixed up, left over from kids' tie-dye party. I also have jet black 150 unmixed, fresh jar. Also on the shelf is some soda ash and synthrapol. Must I use acid dyes or can I try with the stuff I have? Thanks!

  • Hi Amy,

    You can use Procion dyes for wool, although you don't want to use the soda ash, you will be using white vinegar instead. Here is the link to the Procion page http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/procionmx/
    go to the "How to" section and scroll down to immersion dyeing for protein fibers.

    Have fun!
