Jacquard Acid Dye Kit

Jacquard Acid Dye Kit


Extremely brilliant and colorfast, Jacquard's Acid Dyes are concentrated, powdered, hot water dyes that give pure, vibrant and transparent colors on protein fibers including wool, cashmere, alpaca, silk and even some nylons. You can uniformly kettle dye yardage, yarn and fiber or produce effects by painting and steam setting. Use white vinegar or citric acid to fix these dyes.


This Kit contains four jars of Jacquard Acid Dye and one pound of Citric Acid, plus instructions for several methods to dye your fiber, yarn, or cloth. These three primary colors, plus black, can be mixed to create practically any color in the spectrum!.


Each jar of dye is 0.5 oz (14g). Generally, one jar is more than enough to dye a pound of fiber. Check dye quantity needed to obtain deepest saturation here. Use less for lighter shades.


Kit Includes:

  • 601 Yellow Sun, 0.5 oz (14g)
  • 618 Fire Red, 0.5 oz (14g)
  • 624 Turquoise, 0.5 oz (14g)
  • 639 Jet Black, 0.5 oz (14g)
