Jacquard Basic Dyes
The perfect solution for hard-to-dye materials. Developed for acrylic fibers (e.g. faux fur, wigs and inexpensive yarn), these dyes are also the go-to for wood, reeds, straw, paper, leather and hemp! Use them for potpourri, dolls, buttons and furniture, or add to Piñata Claro Extender for custom alcohol ink colors.
- NZD $9.80
Basic Dyes are exceptionally easy to use. The process is so simple that commercial dyers often use them to color fibers such as silk and wool; however, they tend to have poor light- and washfastness on fabric, so Basic Dyes are generally only used by home fabric dyers when other dyes are not an option. As a class, Basic Dyes offer some of the most vibrant and intense colors available for any fiber, and are frequently used when maximum color intensity is desired.
