Something important you should know about tie dye is what the best tie dye fabric is to use! Short answer: fabrics that take dyes the best are natural fabrics. Cotton is far and away the most common, but other natural fibers that work well include silk, hemp, and rayon.
Sometimes it can be challenging to find fabrics that are 100% made from natural fibers. You'll want to get as close to 100% as possible. A 90/10 ratio is fine blended with polester or lycra, but if the blend more like 50/50, the color may become faded.
Your standard tie dye will not work on synthetic fibers. This includes the thread of the tee shirt if the shirt is cotton but the thread is polyester! Your shirt will dye perfectly but the thread will remain white.
Use traditional tie dye techniques to turn a boring pair of shorts into a cool wearable piece of art. Create the clusters using rubber bands and red dye - it takes less time than a trip to the mall.
