Alter Ego Dyed Scarf

Shopping list:

Let's get started!

These dyes are amazing! This tutorial will teach you how to use them and show you their vibrancy on one of our Devore Cut Satin Scarves.

Getting started

Step 1: It helps to weigh your item because the dye quantity is based on that. Our scarf weighed 2 ounces. Pre-soak the item in lukewarm water.

Presoak in warm water

Step 2: Measure out your dyes after determining the quantity needed. We used 4 mls of each color, 6 drops each of vinegar and fixative and 5 mls of salt. The kit comes with these handy measuring cups and pipettes and a brochure is available that gives clear directions and easy recipes to get the look you want. We did find the dyes to be very concentrated, so a little goes a long way. With the kit, you could dye 36 scarves or more.

Add Vinegar and Fixative to water

Step 3: Add all the ingredients, stir, then add the wetted out fabric. If your scarf has fringe, you might want to loosely tie it before hand so it doesn't get tangled.

Step 4: Stir for about 5 min. then turn up the heat so it comes to a simmer in about 20 min. Then turn off the heat and let it sit for 10 min.

Step 5: Rinse and wash with Synthrapol detergent or a mild liquid dish soap, rinse again.

Step 6: We then rolled the wet fabric in a dry towel to absorb the excess moisture and then ironed it dry. Voila! We love how our colors turned out and total time was less than one hour start to finish. Very easy, very exciting!
