Can I Dye Cotton/Polyester/Spandex?

cottonHi, I have a white jacket that’s labeled dry clean only. It’s a cotton/polyester/spandex blend with a liner. Is this impossible to dye?
Thanks,
Ysette

Ysette,
please read my article Fabric Dyeing 101 that is on www.fabrics.net. It has a link at the top of my monthly column.
Nothing is impossible – but will you be pleased with the outcome? The lining and thread will not take the dye. IN addition, the fabric will undergo stress from a warm water based process.
If you want to consult with the professionals, contact the following dye services:

good luck,
