The shade you achieve will depend of 3 things:
1. FABRIC TYPE
• Cotton, linen, viscose will dye to the full shade
• Polyester/cotton & polyester/viscose mixes will dye to lighter shades
• Wool, silk, polyester, acrylic, nylon & fabric with special finishes, e.g. 'dry clean only' cannot be dyed.
2. FABRIC AMOUNT
• Up to 500g fabric (e.g. 1 pair jeans) will bye to the full shade
• A maximum of 1kg can be dyed, to lighter shades
3. FABRIC COLOUR
• Colour mixing rules apply, e.g. blue dye on red fabric gives purple. Patterned fabric will often still show through
