What is fiber art?

Fiber art uses materials like yarn, fabric, and thread to weave, knit, embroider, and more, transforming everyday textiles into stunning pieces of art! Whether it’s an intricate macrame wall hanging or a simple knit stocking, fiber art encompasses a range of techniques that both beginners and seasoned artists can delve into. Try customizing your fiber art with Tulip for bold, vibrant color!

How to choose the best dye for fabric art

  1. Identify the fabric type. Tulip One-Step Dyes and Permanent Fabric Dyes work best on natural fiber textiles like cotton, linen, silk, and wool. Synthetic materials, such as polyester, acrylic, and nylon, absorb these dyes poorly or sometimes not at all.
  2. Consider the application method. Tulip Permanent Fabric Dyes are ideal for immersion dyeing to achieve a solid, even color. One-Step Dye are ideal for creating tie-dye designs on textiles.
  3. Pick your color palette. Tulip One-Step Dyes and Permanent Fabric Dyes come in a wide variety of colors and can even be mixed to create custom shades!
  4. Test your dyes. Always test your dye on scrap fabric to ensure that it meets your expectations before committing to the full project.
