Hemp fibres take dye extremely well. Due to Hemp's absorbant fibre, the dye penetrates deep into the fibre which therefore gives a long lasting and rich colour.
These dyes are simply bursting with a whole spectrum of colourful possibilities , so if you feel like a change, you can wake up your wardrobe, revive a faded top or brighten some cushion covers with colour and ease, you have all the colours of the rainbow to choose from.

Free from heavy metals and AZO's (nasty compounds found in most dyes) these are known as Fibre Reactive Dyes and are eco-friendly; low-impact dyes such as those classified by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 as low-impact and garments using Fibre Reactive dye are approved. Our boss, personally spoke to a Director at Dylon some 20 odd years ago. At that time he was told that the Machine Washable Dyes were AZO free. He even said that if a Goldfish could survive being tumbled in a washing machine, the water with the dye in was so clean that they would be able to live through a cycle.
These dyes are suitable for use in a standard automatic front loading washing machine and come with comprehensive instructions, will not damage your washing machine at all and are very easy to use. In general one box will dye roughly 600g of fabric to the full colour and 1200g of fabric to a slightly faded version.
Dylon dyes are vegan. They're not tested on animals, and do not contain any animal derivatives.
