    Tulle picks up colour very well, I dyed my crinoline and it was very true to the pakage colour. Don’t know about satin though, depends on what the actual fabric is (ie silk, nylon, ployester etc…)

    There should be a tag inside saying what the actual fabric is, just like in regular clothes.  “Satin” isn’t really a type of fabric, it’s more like a description of a weave.

    100% polyester can be dyed, you just have to use the right product. Jacquard sells a brand called, iDye poly. Easy packets and it will dye 100% polyester. They also come with a color intensifier if you’re going for a REALLY deep color. I’ve used this with success on 100% polyester yarns.

    Hope this helps!

    This is going to be an interesting one for me as well.  I knew that I would be unable to dye polyester, and purchased a Crinoline from ebay that the seller called Bridal Satin.  I was thinking YAY!!!  I am still waiting for it to be delivered, and now I am stressing that it won’t be suitable either. UGH!!!!!

    The poly dyes come in set shades and you can sort of tune the hue by how much dye you add, how long it sits in the dye,  and how much you rinse the fabric before fully drying it. I’ve read you can mix colors, but I haven’t tried that. If you’re looking for a VERY specific shade, it could be hit or miss. That particular brand can be used in the washing machine. Just throw the packet in and it takes care of itself. I’ve done them on the stove top for smaller stuff, and I will agree, they’re pretty smelly! The packs are around $3 at a place like joann’s, so it may be worth trying dying one of the crinolines you have before changing courses completely.
