Cotton Corduroy Curtains

curtains

Hi Jennifer, I’m so glad I found your website. I have a set of cotton corduroy curtains in a pale blue, and would like to dye them navy. This would be my first time trying to dye something. Could you recommend a dye to use and let me know if there is anything else I should be doing besides following the directions on the dye container? Thanks, Min

Hi Min,
Please read my article on Fabric Dyeing 101 before you start. Also, check the fiber content of the curtains carefully. Some corduroy is part polyester, which will reduce the amount that the dye will take. If they are all cotton, you can probably dye the corduroy, keeping in mind that the thread will not dye. I suggest that you use the reactive dyes from Dharma Trading Co. for best results.
good luck,
Jennifer
