I was wondering does any one on here know if I could use Faygo Pop to dye any kind of fabrics? Here is the Faygo website:  www.faygo.com 
Thanks in advance

The sugar my cause a problem, sticky fibers, but you can always try. I would think that wool may dye better than cotton.

The faygo will probably dye a protein or nylon yarn but it's not the best idea though.

There's not much food coloring in the faygo, so you'd have to use alot of it to get a decent color: like one ounce of yarn to one 2 liter bottle and the sugar in it will probably get the yarn sticky.

Yarns and fabric that dye with food coloring are: wool, alpaca, silk (though it usually doesn't stay in though), nylon, angora, and any other animal fiber.

Cotton and Acrylic yarn or fabric will not be dyed with food coloring, just stained and the stain will wash out every time the fabric is cleaned.

The soda will also have to be heated, which will probably mean foaming, and something to raise the acidity may have to be added, like vinegar.

I'd say to just use wilton's or koolaid, it'll be cheaper and easier.
