Extremely brilliant and colorfast, JacquardÂs Acid Dyes are concentrated, powdered, hot water dyes that yield the most vibrant results possible for protein fibers including feathers, wool and other natural material. Immersion dyeing with a Jacquard Acid Dye produces a uniform color, always a challenge for dyers. DonÂt be alarmed by the name Â the only acid involved is the white vinegar (acetic acid) that you add to the dye bath. A half oz (14 g) bottle will color up to 2 lbs (0.91 kg) of fiber, depending on the depth of the shade.
