Shibori pleat setting on Pole
  • I'm using the green label and over dying a Shibori piece that is on a pole. I beleive to set the pleats I need to put the piece wet into a vinegar bath....then use mechanical pressure and allow to dry. My question is will the vinegar do anything to the color of the dyes that I'm using? If so does anyone have any suggestions to set the pleats in another manner?
    Thanks.
  • The Green Label Silk Colors are already acidified, so exposure to vinegar shouldn't be a problem. When all is said and done, though, the dyes will still need to be set by steaming or by immersion into a Jacquard Permanent Dyeset Concentrate and water mixture.
