Back in November, I purchased a small, one ounce, jar of Kiton Acid Dye at a fiber fair. I never used it, but I'd like to now, because I have a craft show coming up and I have a LOT of undyed fiber!

All I have in the bag is a card for the lady I bought it from, and on the back, handwritten, it says "Pro Chemical Dyes" and "search Kiton."

Does anyone know how to dye with this? Any tips?

Looks to be a standard acid dye.


Pro-Chem has a ton of product instructions on their site.  I buy almost all my dyes from them (although I use their Washfast Acid dyes), and they have a wide selection of cotton and acid dyes for protein fibers.  Good luck!
