For many years Cushing’s Perfection Dye was a “union” type dye, designed to be suitable for a variety of plant, animal and synthetic fibers. In response to the changing availability of raw materials and to increase the effectiveness and ease of use of our dyes, we reformulated them into two types, acid and direct. Acid dyes are suitable for wool, mohair, and nylon. Direct dyes are the better choice for cottons and cellulose materials, plus linen and rayon. Silk dyes best with one type or the other, depending on the particular characteristics of the silk.

The contents of one package will dye one pound (dry weight) of material to the full shade. Use more or less for deeper or weaker shades.

    Love the colors! Clean and Bright. I wish I could purchase a Sample Color card.
    Easy to use. I wet watercolor paper, pat dry and dipped ends in some concentrate dye to make a sample set. This has been helpful for when I dye yarn/fiber or refer for color mixing.
    - The Silver Gray appears more brown than gray. I will need to purchase black to mix a bit with.

        Love your quick easy service and the tutorials on youtube have helped me to become a great yarn dyer along with the Cushing dyes and the I dyed fiber and yarn that you offer on your site. Thanks so much.

        Cushing's Perfection Dye is Great!

            Comments about Knitting > Accessories Perfection Acid Dyes:

            Cushing's Dye is fun and easy to use. It is important to read the directions (soak your fibers) and realize that spun fibers might not absorb the dye evenly if they aren't soaked or gently dipped in the dye bath. A nice big pot is helpful for ease of use.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Fast delivery and well packaged.

              I used this Acid Dye to dye some 100% wool yarn, I follow the instructions, but I didn't want an even dye job so watched the yarn and pulled it out of the dye when I had a nice verigated color, it worked perfect!
