dyeing compression stockings
  • I would like to dye a pair of compression stockings. The content is 69% Poltmide & 31% Elasthane. I think that might be spandex and Lycra? Can I just use the Jacquard Acid Dye ? I probably won't be able to heat set.
    Thanks,
    Gale
  • Hi Gale,

    Because the Acid dye needs considerable heat to work effectively I'd be concerned about both components of the stockings. You might want to consider using Dye-Na-Flow to color them instead. Using that light weight paint with Air Fix would eliminate the need for heat setting.
