Can Nylon/Polyester/Elastine Be Dyed

Not sure if you have ever heard of the Athletic Wear Under Armour, but they set a compression fitting leggings for sports and I was interested in getting a white pair of leggings dyed to match the top. The fabric is 63% Nylon, 23% Polyester and 14% Elastine. Do you know if this can be dyed by a professional? I have seen very few people on line that state that they dye Polyester, but can’t seem to get a hold of there. Please let me know if you have ever heard of anyone successfully dyeing these Under Armour Cold Gear products. Thank you

Hi Scott,
check with Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com. If anyone can do it, she can. Nylon, your majority fabric here, can be dyed using a certain type of dye. The polyester and elastine content will not take dye at all. Check with Sherry for details.
