Scouring Yarn for Dyeing

Are you new to dyeing, and need to know how to prepare your materials? Or perhaps you've tried dyeing something, only to have disappointing results? One of the first ways to improve your results is by scouring, or pre-washing, anything you plan on dyeing. This guide will help you prepare ANY plant-based fiber (cotton, linen, or rayon) for the best, most saturated dyeing results.

While this guide is geared towards yarn dyeing, the information is the same for fabric dyers as well.
