Basic Dye is the perfect solution for hard-to-dye materials. Developed for acrylic fibres (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.
Basic Dyes are exceptionally easy to use. The process is so simple that commercial dyers often use them to color fibres 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 fibre, and are frequently used when maximum color intensity is desired.
