I'm very curious about these dyes. I've seen where they react quickly with very little rinsing but also read Paula's Q/A about it not making sense that they could be reactive dyes and that makes sense to me as well.
Anyways, I've been dyeing silks with procion dye and soda ash because I really don't have a place to set up an acid dye station with a heat source (small apartment, big toddler). But I'm also wanting to try some shibori techniques that don't really work well when I have to wait for the procion dye to batch. Then again, I have no use for silk yardage, silk ribbon or for dancer's veils. And most of my customers have kids who really seem to enjoy playsilks. I saw they are labeled as "non-toxic".. are they really?
Also, would they work in combination with procion dye? They are kind of expensive.. I can see myself dyeing the silks solid colors with procion dye and then just using the colorhue dyes for stitched/clamped detailing. Would that work?
