The fiber reactive Procion dyes I use are Colorfast and they will not wash out - the molecules of the dye combine with the molecules of the fabric to create a permanent bond - the color becomes part of the fabric. I have washed all of my shirts 3 times, so they are ready to wear with no special washing instructions. I feel you will get the best results to wash in cold water with like colors to keep them as brilliant as the day you bought them. (More info in shop policies)
Thank you for your interest in my shop & please e-mail me with any questions or comments.

About

Colorful Dyed Mandala T-Shirts...

I hesitate to call this work Tie Dye, because there are many of us doing things today that were not thought of in the 60’s! I hand tie my fabrics with Sinew, a waxed polyester thread. The sinew allows you to create very intricate designs & tie them very tightly. My specialties is the Mandala, these designs are drawn on carefully folded fabric with a washable marker & tied off into segments with the sinew. These segments are then dyed with several shades of the same color, or a mix of colors to give them great depth. When learning to do these Mandala shirts, I would easily spend 2 hours on a shirt & had found myself doubling that at times for a single T-shirt. As I have grown & found my own individual method, these times have improved.
I was influenced by the Grateful Dead as a young man. I loved the music & the colorful people that followed them around. I sold shirts at the concerts in the early 80’s. I was called Grateful Dan by a girl I worked with in high school, so I have decided to use it as my online shop name here on Etsy.
It could be 10 years ago now at yearly college reunion I was re-introduced to tie dye by our dear friend Peg & my wife’s college roommate from the late 70’s. After the reunion we decided to purchase all that would be needed to host a tie dye party ourselves & invited lots of kids & their parents too. Well the kids had a blast, but the parents enjoyed the quiet time without their kids, so I had lots of shirt to play with! That snowballed into the necessity of sales.
Etsy has pushed us to offer new items & develop a product that will attract the attention you need to remain fruitful. I do hope you Love what you see here in Dye Works by GratefulDan. Thanks for your interest!

~ Tie Dye by GratefulDan ~

We use only the finest Fiber Reactive Dyes, combined with heavyweight cotton garments will give you a long lasting vibrant product.
All of my dyed garments go through several hand washes to get rid of most of the excess dye. Then, the first of two machine cycles I use a professional textile detergent which helps keep loose particles of dye in suspension so they don't stain other areas of the fabric. These extensive wash cycles will leave you with an article of clothing which will not require any special care instructions, it is now pre-washed pre-shrunk & color-fast. I do however suggest that you wash it separately at least the first time as a safeguard.
Rayon can be washed in a Special Laundry Bag in a Front Loading Machine, or Hand Wash & Hang Dry!
