While Dark Black is our personal favourite for a deep, solid black in liquid dyeing, Raven Black is a good alternative for those after a blue-based black. Raven Black casts a blue/purple halo in liquid dyeing.
e've sold black procion dyes before, but nothing compares to DARK BLACK! The blackest of the all the blacks that came before it, this procion fibre reactive dye is superior to any other black dye we've tried. For best results, mix this one strong (at least 2-3x stronger than other colours)and you'll be pleased with the depth of black you can achieve with DARK BLACK.
The undisputed King Of Tie Dye, once you try using procion fibre reactive dyes you'll never go back to other dyes! When used correctly and in conjunction with soda ash fixative, they create vibrant, rich and colourfast results. They don't fade, even after repeated washing and they are great value for money, safe, easy and fun to use! Procion dyes work best with natural cellulose fibres like cotton, bamboo, hemp etc. Procion fibre reactive dyes form a permanent bond with the fibres instead of sitting on top of the fabric like other dyes, meaning that they will not bleed or run after the dyeing process is completed, making them completely safe to use on baby clothing, bed linen and even baby carriers.

Please keep in mind that the colours may appear slightly differently on your screen than in your final results, due to several factors including differences in screen resolution settings and fabric composition.
The ratio of dye to water that we like to use is about half a teaspoon (approximately 2g) of powdered dye in 200ml of water. You can change the intensity and shades of the colours by using more or less dye powder. For an intense black, we recommend using 2-3 times as much dye powder when mixing your Dark Black.
IMPORTANT! Procion dyes must be used in conjunction with Soda Ash Fixative to ensure that they work properly. This is an essential step to ensure that your dyes permanent and will not run and fade in the wash, so PLEASE DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP! Click below to add Soda Ash Dye Fixative to your cart.
