I have the weekend free, so I decided to try my hand at dying fabric. I've done some research on it, but never tried it.

I washed my 100% cotton fabric in synthrapol. I measured and mixed the dye bath thoroughly per the dye's instructions. I put in plenty of salt. I made sure the fabric was a little more than damp when I put it into the very very hot dye bath. I stirred vigorously for 15 minutes, and then regularly for 45 as the directions told me to do.

Nothing happened. I figured stupid Joann Fabrics lied to me about the fabric content. So I did an after-the-fact burn test. Behaves like cotton. I am completely mystified.

Any thoughts?
