I tried to find what material it is made out of online, but didn’t have any luck.  Maybe there is some info on the package though.  I looked at the Rit Dye website and it lists fabrics that will dye well, and those that will not.  I would suggest trying to identify what material the runner is made from first.

 

RIT works best on many natural, washable fabrics such as…

  • 100% cotton, linen, silk, wool, ramie
  • Synthetics such as rayon, nylon and acetate
  • Fiber blends with at least 60% cotton or other dyeable fiber (Blends will tint evenly but will not achieve full color)

…but there are fabrics that will not accept dye such as…

  • Fabrics with 50% or more polyester content
  • 100% acrylic, fiberglass, or metallic fibers
  • Fabrics with rubber backing (bath mats or throw rugs)
  • Fabrics with special finishes such as water repellents
  • Fabrics with bleach damage or extensive staining
  • Fabrics washable only in cold water or labeled “dry clean only”

I am contemplating getting my theme printed on my aisle runner by maybe a tshirt shop.  A lady on etsy made my invitations and she said she could send me the image of the invitation design in a PDF, and I am going to see if a tshirt place will print it on the runner.  I havent tried to see about how that will work, but I will let you know!  At first I wanted a purple runner, or a nice fabric print runner, but I dont trust my dying skills and it’s so hard to find the perfect fabric.
