Country Classics Dyes

COUNTRY CLASSIC DYES, CLOSEOUT PRICED
Country Classics Dyes are so easy to use that even a beginner will get great results. Ideal with wool or silk, no other messy chemicals to use, and you can custom mix the dye powder colors together to create your own colorway. Individual 3 oz. jars can dye up to 2 pounds of wool in 30 minutes. Close-out priced at $3.50 each. Quantities remaining are shown next to the color in the drop down.

WASHFAST ACID DYES
Washfast Acid Dyes are great for silk, wool, angora, mohair & nylon, and are permanent, washable, and lightfast. Wash Fast Acid Dyes require a little more preparation and a few auxiliary chemicals including salt (for level dyeing), an acid such as ammonium sulfate, citric acid crystals or vinegar (to lower the pH of the dye bath so the reaction will occur) and synthrapol or dish detergent (for better wetting). Mix and match primary dyes to create specific warm or cool colors. 1 ounce of dye will dye 6 pounds of fiber to medium shade. Washfast Dyes, 1 oz. jars.

Washfast Dyes While supplies last. $4.00/jar
