Product Description

These Alter Ego Dyes, which are also sold individually in lots more colors, are tailored specifically for dyeing patterned Silk/Rayon blends, like Devore Satin or Cut Rayon Silk Velvet where the backing is silk and the pattern overlay is rayon satin or rayon velvet pile. Alter Ego dyes provide colors for the silk fibers, and colors for the rayon fibers. You choose one of each, and pour them both into the dye bath with your fabric or scarf, vinegar, salt and fixative, and shazam! beautifully dyed in the 2 colors you chose.

The silk dye only dyes the silk fibers, and the rayon dye only dyes the rayon fibers. Check out the pics above to see examples. Absolutely fabulous results, and so easy to use even a blind-folded crazy man in a straight jacket could do it! Just throw everything into a pot on the stove, simmer and stir for about 30 minutes and booyah! If you like cut silk/rayon velvet or devore satin goods, in any form, you have to try these dyes! The results are fantastic, and they are so easy to use you will love them.

I'm just finishing up my first three devore scarves using this kit. The instructions are well written and easy to follow but the colors that are needed for the recommended combinations are not all included in the kit. I would have to buy those separately to achieve their suggestions. So I had to experiment which I didnt really want to do seeing as how expensive the kit is. Also the droppers for measuring dyes were very difficult to read so I wasnt too sure how much of the dyes I had added to the pot. But having said that the colors that I tried were vivid and satisfying. The only one I didnt like was a silk bluered combo for purple with a yellow for the viscose. The purple deffinatly muddied the yellow. What would make this a great kit is if there were combinations of colors and amount of dyes used for each combo that used the colors in the kit. There was a deffinate chemical ordor in the room so i would strongly advise good ventilation.

These are just so much fun like having a kid's chemistry set! I wish I had a bit more understanding of the proportions needed for the size scarf but experimenting is part of the adventure. I can see making these for gifts because everyone loves them and I sold the first one I ever made. Warning: using the kit will make you want more colors after the first few scarves - they are THAT much fun!

Fabulous products! I just wish I had checked your your online step by step instructions instead of following the brochures' instructions. And this is because the recommended amount of dye to be used is vastly different far more economical to do it your way and the end result is more attractive in terms of colour too. So thank you!

I wish the blue in the rayon reactive color was a primarycerulean blue instead of a dark purpley-black blue (it would be much easier to mix other colors like green with a lighter brighter blue).

This dye kit is SUPER FANTASTIC! for dying the two toned scarves. I used the canning jar method so I could dye several scarves at a time and it worked perfectly. The kit is a little spendy but does dye quite a few scarves making it worth the cost.

This kit is a great way to try dying the devore scarves. It is easy to use. The only wish I have is that the directions were a little more comprehensive. I also noticed that the vinegar is 7% acidity whereas readily available vinegar (from the grocery store) is 5%. Because Dharma doesn't sell the 7% I have been looking but have not yet found the higher acidity vinegar. Help! But overall a great starter kit.

Very easy to use with a decent selection of colors for mixing! I wish I had purchased a black rayon dye to increase the possibilities even more. But I did use some black dharma acid dye to augment the silk colors and it worked beautifully!

I had a wonderful time with this kit. There was enough dye to get a good idea how this process works and to know if you want to delve in further. I will!
