So, I was too impatient to wait for my acid dyes to arrive after experimenting with a little dyeing last week, and I had some packets of dye to use with cotton and found some 50/50 cotton/linen yarn. So I dyed it and the colors came out nice. And then I realized they weren’t colorfast. I know now that I should have soaked it in some soda ash solution first, but I didn’t. Is there any way to set the color on it now, after dyeing? I tried steaming it and that didn’t seem to work, and I’m assuming that since it i s not acid dye, vinegar also won’t do anything.
Thanks for any tips.
