Chenille Dyeing

Today I started dyeing some chenille for Bubba Chenille I've never dyed chenille before so I started by weighing the dry fabric. I now longer need to weigh my usual fabrics and threads before dyeing. I know exactly how much everything weighs.

I was very surprised, the chenille wasn't as heavy as I thought.

No photos of the dried fabric. I took some but the photos didn't capture the true colour. I'll try again tomorrow.

I also dyed heaps of our 3 pack fabric colourways. This lot's ready to go in the machine tomorrow for its final rinse.

I left this lot soaking overnight. Enough for one day.

I didn't include the first photo of the dried chenille. I didn't want to scare you. It looked Red. Today's photos is a little better but not much. It is Hot Pink, much like your scarf.
