We dye shiny spandex, matte spandex, stretch lace, stretch mesh, glissenette, and can special order silk chiffon for dyeing. We only dye fabrics sold by Your Designs – performance wear fabrics.

Need Help Deciding How Many Colors To Pick?

Take a look at these projects below to help you best decide on the look you are going for.

  • A one colored ombre is made with one dye color and the dye bath is watered down to achieve the lighter colors, this doesn’t produce the most even effect. A one colored ombre typical as a rougher/not smooth look to it.
  • A two colored ombre using different hues of the same color gives a smoother more graceful appearance to it.
  • We can also do ombres with 3 colors.

This White Super Stretch Lace was ombre dyed using 3 different blues.

This White Shiny Tricot was ombre dyed using 3 different blue dyes.

Here is an example of White Shiny Tricot ombre dyed with one dye color.

Here is an example of White Glissenette ombre dyed using 3 dye colors.

This White Shiny Tricot was ombre dyed with 2 dye colors.

How It Works

As we have been getting more questions on  our fabric dyeing services I thought I would take a minute and explain the process. Here is a generalized list of the process from start to finish:

  • customer contacts us about fabric dyeing, this can be done by phone or email. We will discuss your needs and what you want to make with your costume dyed fabric. If we are dyeing a solid color it is not as important that we know what you are making but if you are wanting an ombre dyed fabric it is important that we discuss your project so that we can make sure that all of the colors well be seen on your finished design.
  • for ombre dyeing we will discuss with you the best method for your fabric, we want you to get the most use out of your spandex fabric as possible. We can either dye the fabric as is, we can cut it in to smaller pieces, we can mail you the white spandex and after you cut out your pattern pieces they can be mailed back to us for dyeing. There are many option!
  • After we have talked about what you are designing we will email you a sketch of the ombre to get your approval. Once approved we will get started. Different projects require different lengths of time. Most Ombre dyeing projects are not a 1 day job, they often require a few days and sometimes longer depending on the amount of fabric and the aspects of each individual job.
  • We hand dip the ombre fabrics and only dye 1 – 2 yard pieces at a time.
  • Larger dye jobs may require a deposit.
  • Dye colors vary on the color fastness so it is important to test the fabric before laundering. A mild soap and COLD WATER is recommended. NEVER USE HOT WATER ON YOUR CUSTOM DYED SPANDEX FABRICS.

    Looking for hot pink to black Ombre. Wanting it on a mystic type fabric. This will be used for gymnastics leotards. Approximately 15 yards are needed.
