Ask A Dyer
Debcquilts – “I want to play with dye in squirt bottles to apply color to my yarn. So, I’ve got the yarn spread out on plastic wrap and apply color. If I’m using acid dyes, what are my options for heat setting this? If I follow strictly the edict to not use food stuffs and dye stuffs together, does that include the microwave? Or can I put this skein in a hot bath, given I’ve introduced acid somewhere? I’m just asking about the heat source here. And, of course, colorfastness in the process. If I’ve got a skein of orange on one side and blue on the other with white in between, I don’t want mud if I put it in its heat bath, but I do need to set the color?
