Procion is perfect for natural plant fibers — cotton, linen, paper, reeds, and wood. Do not use it to dye synthetics.
Use Procion for tie-dye , vat dyeing, batik, airbrush, handpainting, printing, spatter-painting and more! This concentrated dye, which you add to hot water, gives you the most brilliant color of all dyes. Typically, 1 oz can dye more than 5 yards of fabric or about nine T-shirts .
