Default Re: Lycra or Nylon

Don't think it is possible to dye lycra - not a natural fibre so dye will not take. Lycra these days is available in a multitude of colours - try Spotlight or dance shops. Nylon headbands are easy to make, but we don't have the variety or brand of dye that is used in the instructions from the US. I bought a heap of stockings with faulty elastic tops quite cheaply from the US, and since that part gets cut off wasn't a problem. I found the dying process a little hit and miss, and the colour on some of them was a little off. I actually bought a heap already made up from some one in the US last year, and as they were lightweight did not cost very much for postage. Think they worked out around $1 each.
