I dyed both my bleached and unbleached CPF's, and I think the unbleached ones held the color better! In any case, it definitely "works" to dye unbleached prefolds.<br>
Oh, I did use Dylon, so that is different than tie-dye, however, I think it would still work. I plan on tie dying some of my other unbleached CPF's.<br>
I could see a little bit of a color shift on the unbleached ones, but not too much. The colors were a little more muted but not too much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
I tie dyed a TON of unbleached prefolds last summer, and the colors were gorgeous- there is not a noticeable difference between the unbleached prefolds I dyed, and the white cotton shirts I dyed to match.<br><br>
Have fun- I am just gearing up to do another huge batch because it is so fun!
I have before, but I didn' tlike how it "warmed" all the colors... I don't know!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The work was beautiful but nothing at all like I had pictured it might be before I got started!<br><br>
However, that being said, tie dying is such a blast that I think I'd probably go for it anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
I've done solid and tie dyed unbleached prefolds and there really isnt THAT much of a difference unless you use pastel/light colors. the brighter, more vivid shades of color will come out nicer, yellow does tend to "orange out" a little though.<br><br>
depending on what size you need, clothdiaper.com hase some infant bleached ones for 9.95 a dz, but the shippings kindof high for a dz, it was almost $10, so i ended up buying 3 dz and some pins, and it was 10.85 for shipping
Oh I'm so mad! I've been waiting for daaays for my prefolds from cloth diaper.com (shipping is high too) and tomorrow we are tie-dying at a birthday party. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I totally want to do this in the future.
