How To Dye Mongolian Tibetan Lamb Fur
It will be a bit challenging to dye Mongolian lamb fur materials because its fur fibers are delicate and can be easily damaged during the color treatment process. Here are some operation steps to follow:
Choose a high-quality, acid-based dye suitable for use on animal fibers. Some good options are always suggested in the manul book of dyes suppliers. It’s better to check it before start.
If the fur is already attached to a garment, you will need to carefully remove it before dyeing. If you’re dyeing a pelt or piece of fabric, skip this step.
Clean the Fur
Clean the fur thoroughly to remove any dirt, oils, or other debris that may prevent the dye from adhering. You can do this by gently brushing the fur with a soft-bristled brush or using a fur cleaner.
Prepare the dye according to the instructions on the package. Most acid dyes require the addition of vinegar or another acid to set the color.
Submerge the fur in the dye bath, making sure that it is fully covered. Use a stirring tool to move the fur around in the dye bath and ensure even color coverage.
Keep an eye on the fur and periodically check the color to see if it has reached the desired shade. Remember that the color will look darker when wet.
Dry the Fur
When the fur has reached the desired color, remove it from the dye bath and rinse it thoroughly with cool water. Be very gentle to avoid damaging the fibers. Hang the fur up to dry, being careful not to wring or twist it.
Once the fur is dry, you can brush it out with a soft-bristled brush to restore its fluffiness.
Remember to always follow the dye manufacturer’s instructions and test the dye on a small, inconspicuous area before dyeing the entire piece of fur. If you are unsure about the dyeing process, it may be best to take your Mongolian lamb fur to a professional furrier or tailor who specializes in working with fur.
