handpainting a rayon chenille warp?
I'm currently warping up a mixed warp, rayon chenille and feltable wool in stripes, with the intent of doing a differential-shrinkage collapse weave. I want to handpaint the rayon chenille warp. The handpainting I can do, but any suggestions about rinsing it out afterwards? I don't want to abuse the chenille but fiber-reactive dyes bleed a lot, even though I'm using Cibacron F (which bleeds less than Procion MX), and I'm not sure how to get the dyes out without tangling or weakening the chenille.
