How to dye synthetic fabric

Naomi asks:
Can you dye synthetic material like nylon?

Yes, you can. There are special dyes you can buy called disperse dyes. Although you won't get vivid colors from what I gather. You can get these dyes from Pro Chemical. Here's the instructions for the different types of synthetics. You'll need a good candy thermometer to do this as the differing water temperature seem to be critical in this process. Best of luck.
