Hi, I've dyed some bamboo and banana silk rovings with Procion MX, and after they're dyed and rinsed they're much stiffer than when undyed. I have no idea of what is causing this... I'm thinking maybe it's the soda ash? I keep experimenting with less each time and it seems softer but I'm already putting way less in than recommended. Anyway, can anyone help me out? Please? Smiley
