New EZ Dye Cotton makes dyeing easy, fun & safe! b>
What a great way to have fun dying yarns or sliver quick, easy & safe without any chemical mordants need! Whether you choose to use our EZ Dye 10/2 Cotton yarn or our EZ Dye Cotton Sliver you're going to love the possibilities!
EZ Dye Cotton is created by adding a molecule to the cellulose that attracts and permanently bonds to a dye molecule, causing the fiber to take dye without the use of auxiliaries such as salt or washing soda.
This dye-only process eliminates the step of pretreating with other chemicals. More dye is taken up than with untreated cotton, reducing dye costs and chemicals in the waste water, and very little dye remains on the fiber that is not permanentlyattached, so less rinsing is needed after dyeing. Less water use,less dyestuff, and no auxiliaries mean lower cost and a greatly decreased environmental impact.
Now you can dye this cotton in your own home with our EZ Dye Napkin kits using safe Botanical Colors Natural Dyes! Weave our Log Cabin pattern using EZ Dye Cotton and an untreated cotton for warp and weft and once off the loom, immerse in the dye and instantly you'll have a light (untreated) and dark (EZ Dye cotton that takes up the dye) fabric of Log Cabin! It's so easy, so fun and so safe!
Choose one of these three kits depending on your interests in weaving and/or spinning.
