Colors without a star require 1 level tablespoon (1/4 to 1/2 oz.) for each lb. of fabric to match the color card.

Colors with * require 2X as much dye.

Colors with * * require 4X as much dye.

Colors marked (T) contain #25 Turquoise these colors:

    1. Require more rinsing to remove the excess dye than do other colors.
    2. Warmer tap water (up to 130F) when vat dyeing, can yield deeper shades.
    3. Using Glauber's salt instead of plain salt when vat dyeing can also improve results.

#56 Azure Blue also yields deeper shades when vat dyed at a higher temperature (hot tap water (130 to 150F).

Black dyes: There are 4 blacks. Each has a different color cast. All work well in direct application methods like tie-dye where the fabric is kept moist long enough for the dye to develop full depth but you will see some differences depending upon which you use and your particular situation and techniques. On the other hand, when vat dyeing (solid shade dyeing), there are some clear differences:

#44 Better Black Vat dyes with a red cast and edges are blue in tie-dye.

#250 Jet Black This is the most concentrated of all the blacks and gives the deepest black when used in vat dyeing with hot tap water (130 to 150F). Edges are green in tie-dye.

#39 Black Vat dyes with a green cast and edges are blue/maroon in tie-dye.

#300 Black Vat dyes with a very blue cast and edges are blue/pink in tie-dye.
