Is it best to tie dye wet or dry?
We generally recommend washing your fabric and leaving it damp before tie – dyeing, as the dye has an easier time saturating the fabric when it’s wet. But depending on the technique and the look you want, you can apply dye to dry fabric. Just make sure the fabric has been washed (if it’s new) to remove the sizing.
