Purple is a rich, jewel-tone hue that looks great for many dye applications (dip-dyeing, tie-dyeing, low water immersion) used in fashion, quilting and home decor projects. Rit Dye Purple Powder Dye helps you liven up your wardrobe, make truly original gifts for family and friends, and redecorate your home. It can be safely used to color almost all fabrics, as well as wood, wicker, paper and plastic. Dark or bright colors may require double dyeing. Not recommended for 100% polyester, acrylic, or fabrics with special finishes, rubber backing, cold water wash, or labeled dry clean only.
