Wool Tincture Dyes are professional-grade supermilling acid dyes. Acid Dyes get their name from the mildly acidic pH required for striking. A Dye "strikes" when its color bonds to a fiber.
Acid Dyes strike to protein fibers like wool, silk, alpaca, and mohair as well as nylon (a synthetic protein).
They will not adhere to cellulose fibers such as cotton, linen, or hemp.
We use non-toxic dyes in combination with natural citric acid. They are pre-measured for minimal exhaust, so the wastewater is harmless, mildly acidic water which is safe to drain over soil, sewer, or septic.
Absolutely! The amount of dye in each tea bag is measured precisely to give predictable color on 100 grams (3.5 oz) of clean fiber. We've found equally consistent results whether dyeing 1 or 2 skeins (100g ea) at a time in a one gallon dye jar or dyeing an entire sweater quantity in a larger pot.
We find using the dye jar to be the simplest method.
Yes, be creative! You can dip dye, over-dye, create ombres, gradients and multi-colored effects. When you work with resist methods or adjust the weight of fiber used with each tea bag, you will alter the strength or saturation of color. These methods might also result in excess dye in the exhaust. We suggest not using more than three tea bags per 3.5oz/100g of fiber to avoid excessive dye in the exhaust.
