Cotton + Cashmere
  • I bought some idye for natural fabrics and didn't realize I needed to choose between salt and vinegar to dye cotton mixed with cashmere. Do I add both, or is one better than the other? It's not a very dark color, I'm just trying to cover up stains on some light-colored clothes.
  • Good morning,

    Dyeing mixed fibers is a bit tricky, but what you can do is start with the salt in the dye bath then about half way through the dye process add the vinegar.
    And just a point to consider; dyes are transparent, so generally when trying to over dye in order to hide stains the result will be that you simply get darker stains. If the stains are slight over dying may help hide them, but if they are substantial over dyeing won't make much difference.

  • I can't wait to try this out. Thanks a lot for the info.
