If you go to the market, you'll find a vast array of rugs and carpets of different materials to choose from. They are mostly made from wool, cotton, acrylic, nylon, or polyester. However, after nylon, olefin or polypropylene fiber is gaining popularity. It accounts for 16% of all the fibers that are manufactured and about 30% of the fibers used in the United States for making carpets. The fiber was first made for outdoor use and has been a popular choice for commercial applications since then. It is a synthetic fiber made of propylene, that is a byproduct of petroleum.
This type of dyeing is a costly method used specifically for heavy yarn fibers. Long rolls of carpet are placed in a stainless steel tank containing dye and the temperature of the dye is increased in order to allow the fibers to absorb the color. Usually single solid color dyeing is done in this method but, having alternate stripes of colors is also possible.
Synthetic fibers include polypropylene and nylon fibers, while natural ones are mostly made up of wool. People having wool rugs often complain of shedding of wool fibers from the rug. Rugs made up of natural fibers like wool have a higher tendency of shedding as compared to the ones made up of synthetic fibers.
Dip the rug into the dyed water with all its edges completely inside. Use the spatula to push the rug's edges inside so that you won't get stains on your hand.
