Product Description

Ta dah!!! Here you go folks! The Poster Sized Color Chart (17"x22") of all of our 130 current Fiber Reactive (Procion) Dye colors. (Does not include the 20 current SpringTones and FallTones 2014*, which we change every year to go with the seasonal Pantone™ Fashion Color Report releases.) It was hard, but we found an affordable printer who's end production run actually matches the colored proofs! Our Graphic Designer and General Manager went through lots of tweaking and several proofs using solid "tub" dyed cotton Jersey swatches from our Dharma Dye Lab (dyed under tightly controlled conditions all on the same lot of fabric) to get this color chart as close as we could to the real deal! Since printed paper never matches living color exactly, some colors are impossible to reproduce how vibrant they really are, or some of the more subtle differences between similar colors, but this is our best shot! A great reference for your dyeroom wall, color for your bathroom, whatever! Enjoy!

Colors shown are from swatches of cotton Jersey dyed in the same temperatures with the same timing, the same water, everything the same except the dye. The weight of goods of dye used  (%OWG) was precisely measured to get the original fabric swatches and varies by color. If you are a serious dyer and want more precise matching ability, you must weigh the dye, as a percentage of the weight of the fabric you are dyeing. To get values we used to obtain the shades on this chart, you will find a list in your Dharma Catalog on pages 6 and 7, also at this link here.

Colors will be different on different fabrics. They can be more intense, and even shift, on rayons. These dyes can shift sometimes dramatically on silks, wool or other fibers, mainly blues and ANY mix that has a blue in it. If you combine different fabrics in a dyebath, or even the same fabrics from a different lot, you can end up with different colors coming out of the same dyebath. Temperature effects outcome of color, as does water chemistry and ph. How long you do each step can effect the outcome as well. So as you see, there are many variables with dyeing. Dyelots can vary a bit too. That is why it can be such an adventure! But if you need precise color, you simply must test. To repeat results it is like a recipe, everything must be done the same each time.

*For printed swatches of our current SpringTones and FallTones, postcards are available upon request.

I love my poster! I have it framed & hanging on the wall right where I mix my dyes. I have a suggestion. Next time you update it please group the colors in same color family like on the dye ordering page on the website (rather than putting them in number order). It makes it even easier to compare one color to another in the same family e.g. the kelly green vs yucca. Nevertheless I've found the poster very useful. Thanks!

Perfect decor on the wall of my dye roombasement bathroom. It's so nice to have the reference right in front of me. Please update this occasionally to add the newest colors. It is an odd size for a frame but I found a float frame at JoAnn's that could handle it so it's not just a poster tacked to the wall. It looks nice in there!
