I am a newbie dyer that is getting really excited to start! I have had the idea for awhile, but just got some money together to get some of my start up tools. I am a Muslim Hijabi, which for those who don't know is a women who wears scarf. I have been wearing for about 8 years on and off. One of the biggest things about wearing hijab is the shopping and matching of the scarf to your clothes. Everytime i buy a new top, I have to go to the scarf store and find an underpiece and scarf to match. I am soooo picky with matching that this can sometimes involve going to multiple stores. I am lucky to live in Dearborn, MI. So, having a physical store as opposed to buying on the net is possible. My ideas has been to buy the clothing blanks (from Dharma Trading) and dye these and the underscarves the exact same color. Either matching to an already existing scarf, or dying a silk scarf the same color. I ordered the Fabric dyers dictionary and the 3 part tie dye videos. Also, 5 silk scarves to start. So, after all that, I welcome any advice on dying silk and cotton!!! Looking for great advice!!
Thanks !! :)
