• I purchased iDYES and want use it without heat or the washing machine. I want to immerse and soak to obtain a gradation the way I do with standard dying techniques. Is this possible, if so how?
  • The iDye dyes are all hot water dyes. Don't even bother to try to use them in cold water! It's not a reasonable idea at all.

    If you want to be able to dye natural fibers in room-temperature water, the only good choice for you is a fiber reactive dye, such as Procion MX dye.

  • Dear Paula,
    Thank you for your advice. I will take it. All I have to do is find an enamel pot, and I am set. RS
