Product Description

This is dyeable untreated nylon! No finishes, no oily stuff like you find on a lot of nylon. It is also known as PFP or "prepared for printing" nylon, as you can silk screen on it. It's perfect for banners, flags, or just waving in the wind. Lightweight and stronger outdoors than natural fibers. Dyes beautifully with our Acid Dyes...also great for painting, stenciling, or silkscreening with fabric paints.

This stuff is perfect for banners and the like. I cut it lengthwise in thirds to make three 20" wide panels and stenciled a repeating pattern on them. I'm going to put them in front of an undecorated muslin sheet "wall" for my campsite at a festival. They fold basically flat they take a stencil well (use a foam or sponge dabber and be sparing with the paint there's no soaking up of paint with this fabric) and they dry in about thirty seconds from being soaking wet. (The stencils were also totally set up and dry within about half an hour. Also-- stencils were just as clear on the reverse as on the front. Whatever you put on this just goes straight through.) Perfect for quick setup and takedown and easy portability. As far as dyeing though-- I dyed two small squares of this a rayon scarf and a sik hanky in emerald green iDye and got emerald green on the scarf lime green on the hanky and bright lemon yellow on the nylon. Doesn't take dye true!! But takes it evenly quickly and thoroughly-- so just test before you commit! I don't mind yellow but it's a darn good thing I didn't have my heart set on green. :)

Perfect for flags. Needs a bit extra dye compared to silk.

purchased this fabric to make appliques for the 4 x 6 nylon flag purchased at the same would help to identify the denier of this fabric & flag--it is very lightweight...had to use acid dyes for the colors and that required steaming (a real learning curve for me as my experience was limited to the fail-proof procion fiber reactive dyes)...nylon takes colors differently so required many experiments...the dye process created wrinkles that I could not remove--a real problem...still working on flag but it will only serve as a trial...will purchase 200 denier for the final product

I feally like the nylon as an alternative to silk for banners. I usually use silk but needed a stronger fabric for a high wind area. It handles the dyepaint just as well just can't use the no flow on it. guttas work fine though.

This was a wonderful fabric for use in my nuno felting projects - I used as outer layer for working the wool fibers together and it did a good job of holding wool design and fibers in place during the wet felting process.
