Dyed stack


This is the rainbow of fabrics (30 yards) I dyed in my potting shed about a week ago. It was a lot of fun, but I learned one thing: This fabric is a lot coarser now that it is dyed than it was before. I don't plan on using Kona PFD for dyeing again, because if I were to make a bed quilt of it, it would not feel good against one's skin.

I am wondering if I wash it again with fabric softener, if it will help. Will have to test.

I would waqsh it a couple of times and I am sure it will soften right up...it sure all looks beautiful!
