I've been dyeing with Kool-Aid and Jacquard Acid dyes and when I rinse until the water has no color in it with both cold and then warm water. This takes about half an hour. At this point, the beautiful, vibrant colors on the playsilk is gone.I heat the water to 185F-200F as the Dharma site says. One person I spoke with at Dharma said not to let the JA go to boiling. Is there a step in the process that I'm missing? When I boiled a playsilk with tea, there wasn't much to rinse and the color stayed beautiful. The wool yarn that I rinsed for 45 minutes is still dripping yellow as it dries.
