DYLON Fabric Dyes Giveaway

I have teamed up with DYLON Fabric Dyes to giveaway a bundle of six products to one lucky winner – three hand dyes (worth £3.39 each) and three machine dyes (worth £6.84 each) in colours of their choosing. 

DYLON have an incredible range of colours to help you transform your fabrics, so whatever creative vision you have they will have a suitable colour to help you achieve it!  Your not restricted to just brightening up your outfits either why not try adding another colour to your home furnishings or just reviving an existing colour giving it a whole new lease of life.


The best fabrics to dye are cotton, linen and viscose, as they will maintain the full vibrant colour of the pack.  Also polyester mixtures with cotton, linen and viscose can be attempted but will be lighter in colour.  If you want to change the colour of a very deep shade it is worthwhile using DYLON Pre-Dye first to lighten the shade before you dye as normal.

Purchasing dyes is much cheaper than completely changing your interiors – newly dyed curtains, cushion covers and blankets can give a room a new look.    You also feel a sense of achievement because you have accomplished it yourself.  Using the dyes is quite simple; there are plenty of instructions to guide you smoothly through the process. 

With the fabric dye for machine use you don’t even need to add salt everything is included in one handy pack and it’s so convenient - you get your washing machine to do the hard work for you!  The hand dyes are cheaper but you have to do lots of stirring, so I would gladly pay a few extra pounds for the simplicity of the machine dye.  But if you have time then it can be rewarding being more involved in the process.


Why buy new when you can upcycle what you own already!

To enter the competition please fill out the form below by the 4th of February.

Win a bundle of DYLON Fabric Dye products
