inheriting dyes

One thing that’s odd about fabric dyeing is how people who know you dye suddenly hand you boxes of their old dye supplies. “Here, I’m sure you’ll use this before I will,” they say. Jugs of Synthropol. Bags of urea or soda ash. Bottles with yellowed labels. So far I’ve been gifted with Jacquard acid dyes, green label silk dyes with some Dye Set, Createx Fiber Reactive Dyes (now discontinued, I understand)… as I reorganized my stash of “dye remnants” last night I was stunned to find I had two sets of Colorhue dyes — the set I bought and the set someone gave me! Oops.

Guess I should start trying some of these out!
