Dying to try the new Dylon A/W collection

You know how much I love Dylon dyes right?  I've used them in all kinds of projects, from upcycling vintage cushions, to kids' t-shirts, to doily bowls to adding images to fabric.

Forget the catwalks and fashion shows, this is where the Autumn/Winter trend news is at.

Dylon have launched three new limited edition colours for Autumn, to help you keep your home and your clothes in vogue.

A sumptuous Russet red evokes the richness of autumn leaves and ripe apples. This colour is predominant in the fashion stores and magazines right now. How about trying it on a pair of your denims for a low-cost way to get that all important pair of coloured jeans.

The chic Slate Blue is one of this season's key catwalk colours and I have plans to use this in our bedroom! I've already decided I'm going to spray our cream metal bedstead a striking metallic petrol blue so this will be prefect.

Finally, there's the limited edition Camel Beige.  Great for updating some of your existing clothes and following the likes of Paul Smith who combines camel with earthy browns and greens this season, or Donna Karen who teams it with edgy urban grey.

So why spend a fortune on new clothes and home accessories when you can simply dye your current ones!

  1. I used Dylon to dye K's bridesmaid dress a dark burgundy to wear to a friend's wedding. It looked fab, shame about the name though: Burlesque Red!

  2. They look fab! I love the Slate Blue and am already casting my eye around thinking 'what can I dye' ... :)

  3. Hi MDM,

    I love Burlesque Red, but I guess it does sound a bit wrong for a little girl!

    Hi Mol,

    The Slate Blue is gorgeous, can't wait to get cracking! I've also got a stash of yellow and green dyes to do my towels to match the new bathrooms :0)
