As a newbie to the world of dyes, I have read just enough to get me totally confused. I recently purchased Dharma Fiber Reactive Procion Dyes for use on silk and other natural fibers. Somewhere I read that you could steam this dye rather than using the cold batch method of setting. If this is correct, what are the steps to do this? On the cold batch method, I read that the fabric had to stay damp from 6 to 24 hours. If steaming is an acceptable method of setting the dyes, when would this be done?
Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated.
