Which diapers can be dyed?

Ok, so I see that a lot of you ladies have dyed your BG diapers with Koolaid and such, but I'm wondering how you can tell if the outter material CAN be dyed or not?

I've gotten a whole bunch of different diapers, some of which are plain white and I would LOVE to dye them, but the ONE that I tried would not take the color. I'm guessing because of the material on the outside of it.

So, do I just keep playing with them or is there something I should be looking for in specific?

A good example is a Wonderoo. I have a couple of them in white, and several other brand diapers that have the SAME material on the outside. Can they be dyed or no?

Any help would be appreciated!

if its PUL on the outside, it wont dye.
so for example....fuzzi bunz, or happy heinys. most people around here have felt at least one of those, so ill use it for an example.

the outer of both of these is pul, as well as wonderoos/wonderworks, mommys touch, etc. most diapers are pul for the waterproofing layer.
and i have an example because, if youve felt one of any of those, then thats what you feel for. if it feels like that, it is pul and wont take to the dye.

i hope this makes sense and helps!!

PUL I'm not sure about
nylon dyes well with KooL aid
cottons with the typical type clothes dye and I can not think of the name of it for the life of me

I tried dying my bummis snap cover and the color didn't hold once I washed. I could really because I tie dyed it and now I have wrinkles in the cover that haven't come out yet.
