Rit die does not come out faded. You have to heat it the longer you leave the material in the darker it will become.

Letaras,
rit dye will not dye craft fur right. you can not heat it for one it will crinkle up and it comes out faded. rit is good for natural material but dyes faded on synthetics.

Sandfly good to know I have never tried it on the craft fur. I have dyed other things with it and had no trouble with it. I have like 5 garbage bags full of natural fur that I have dyed more that a lifetime worth of dubbing. Thanks for the info.

If you're willing to share the dye you used on the craft fur, I'd much appreciate it. I picked up a bunch of it on Friday but they only had white, brown, and black. I wanted Olive so I decided to try RIT on the white fur. It turned out absolutely awful. I even let it soak for 1.5 hours. Barely changed color at all.

Questions about DYEING:

I've dyed honey bug yarn with Rit and it came out good, but I had two problems:

1) The yarn causes the hooks to rust. Is there a solution? Is it just a matter of rinsing it more thoroughly? I thought I rinsed it quite a bit.

2) The color looks great for awhile, but begins to fade pretty quickly after the flies are used and sit in the fly box for a little while. Is that just the nature of cotton? Or is there a dye that will hold its color better with cotton than Rit?

3) I heard Rit Neon Green has been discontinued. Is there a good replacement from another company?

hooks rusting means water on them dry your material for a few days before using.

after sitting in the rit then place in a solution of vinegar it will set the dye. then rinse in cold water.

kool aid works just make sure you set the dye with vinrgar..I use lemon lime 2 packs for dying, do not use sugar based ones get the sugar free.

Try Koolaid to day the fin fur....Its just synthetic fiber and you know what happens when you spill koolaid on your shirt....

Sorry, didn't see Sandy already suggested it.
