Dyeing in Plastic Bags

Just what it says on the cover
No mess. No fuss. Just great colours! And you really do use plastic bags.

I started dyeing in plastic bags in the late 80’s after being continually disappointed with my results using other methods.

My aim
was clear, strong, dark colours. This necessitated individual dye baths for each small piece of fabric. But, the thought of hundreds of bowls and buckets filled me with horror.

My solution
was “dyeing in plastic bags” and I’ve been at it ever since.
