Jacquard Procion Dyes Immersion Dyeing

Immersion or tub dyeing is submerging the fiber being dyed in the dyebath containing water, a specific amount of dye, and the appropriate chemical assistants for a specific length of time. For smooth, even color, the dye bath must be stirred frequently. A large enamel or stainless steel container, or plastic bucket can be used for holding the dye bath.

Stirring Fiber Reactive Dye Baths

For even, smooth color, the fiber should be able to move freely in the dye bath. Any more water in the dye bath will dilute the dyes more than necessary, and decrease the shade and increase the dyeing time. Increasing the volume of the dye bath requires the dye run to be longer for the dye molecules to reach the fiber. If the dye bath is not stirred frequently (every 2 to 5 minutes), the dye and fiber will react unevenly, leaving light and dark patches. To stir fabric, wearing rubber gloves, lift the fiber from the dye bath. Unfold creases, and return the fiber to the bath in a different configuration. To stir yarn, use two stainless steel, plexiglass, or wooden stir sticks. Gently slide one stick into the skein near a cross-tie and lift above the dye bath. With the other stick, pick up a different point of the cross-tie on the skein. Remove the first stick, use that stick to redirect the yarn back into the dye pot in a different pattern.

Jacquard Procion Dyes Method One:

  1. Be sure to wash fabric to remove any dirt, grease or sizing. We suggest using Synthrapol.
  2. Fill container (such as a 5 gallon plastic bucket) with 3 gallons of hot (105° F) tap water, add salt and dye in proportions listed in the general dye amounts below.
  3. Add the fabric or fiber.
  4. Stir frequently for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Remove or lift up the fabric.
  6. Add the soda ash. It helps to dissolve the soda ash in a separate container in a little hot water first. Stir into dye bath.
  7. Put the fabric back into dye bath and stir frequently for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the depth of intensity desired.

Method Two:

  1. Fill container with 3 gallons of hot (105° F) tap water, add dye and stir.
  2. Add the fabric or fiber.
  3. Add the salt in 3 equal parts at 5 minute intervals. If dyeing a deep shade of blue or a full black, use twice the amount of salt, adding it in 2 equal parts at 15 minute intervals while still stirring the dye bath frequently.
  4. Add the soda ash in 2 equal parts at 15 minute intervals while still stirring the dye bath frequently.
  5. Dye for 30 to 60 minutes after the last soda addition.
