Dylon vs. Tulip

I need to dye some prefolds and I have always used Dylon with great results. But of course everywhere I used to buy it stopped selling it and went to Tulip instead. Has anyone used Tulip?Do you like it after washing and wearing? It says it is for clothes/won't bleed but then so does Rit and that is terrible dye. I can still get Dylon but it is further away and there are not many color choices.

You can order great dye from dharmatrading. Tons of colors and cheaper in the long run.

I thought of that before but I heard you need soda ash and setters or whatever. I have the dylon mastered but that is about the extent of my dyeing knowledge. Is it easy to use?

I used Tulip more than 3 years ago to dye prefolds and flats, it never ran after the first setting wash. The colors also have never faded.

Something has either changed or there is user error in the dying process.

You do need to add washing soda and salt, but it is easy. The Dharma website has lots of info on dying.
