I dyed nylon! So pretty


Recommended Posts

I took the chance that nylon could be dyed with food colour. Plenty of people online said it could (due to the protein in the nylon) but seemed pretty uncertain.


I took some light pink, 100% nylon, ribbon yarn, and dyed it like this:



It's so shiny, and so much brighter than the same dye would be on white wool. It's also subtley variegated, although you can't really see it in the pic. I can't wait to use it (project details here on my blog)
