I'm not sure. I thought polyester wouldn't really hold typical dyes, but you can dye BGs, so... Maybe another momma will know.

I wouldn't think so since they're PUL outter I don't think you can dye FB's and aren't the BSWW the same, just witout the pocket basically?

Re: Can you dye BSWW?

I just dyed my BSWW tonight using Dylon dye. Tonight I was using the lime color.. and it didn't hold very well... HOWEVER... last week I used the turqoiuse color and it held (is holding) quite nicely..although it makes more of a pastel color rather than a bold color. I'm thinking my problem tonight was that I had too much water/too many prefolds in the batch.

Now.. my prowraps dye beautifully with Dylon.
