Oh! Oven dyeing -- it would be wonderful, but I'm concerned about safety. I mean, they tell you to get a dedicated crock pot, dedicated microwave, etc. because you don't want to be combining dyeing and cooking. I've been using a big 16 qt. turkey roaster but using the oven would sure speed things up.

I have a dedicated microwave, but I must admit there have been plenty of times I just use the regular one!  I've heard that the dye powder I use - Procion MX - isn't toxic, but that it can cause you to become allergic to it if you inhale the dust, so I use a dust mask.

I'm not too worried about dying in the oven since the main concern is residue on the container holding the dye & fiber, which, in this case, is the turkey roaster.  The oven is just a convient heat source, like the burners if you do a stove-top method.
