dye

I dye all my fabric by hand. The type of dye I use is called Dyrect Charcoal Grey B from kemtex which is a supplier in England, I use this dye for the silk texture stripe scarf and the coloured cushions.

The water has to be boiled around 90c. I always wear gloves, mask, and an apron for heath and safely. Once the water is boiled I measure out the dye and mix it into the water and leave for a few minutes, then place the fabric into the pot.  Once the fabric is ready it is then placed into cold water to cool down and to wash any excess dye, which this is done the fabric is then put into the tumble dyer to dry.

Once the fabric is dyed it is ready to be screen print!
