Description

Urea: A synthetic nitrogen compound that is used as a humectant when dyeing or painting with all classes of dyes, and in printing.  This means urea will keep your dye fabric moist when you are working on it for a long time.  My end product is noticeably better when I've used urea and my project didn't dry out too soon.  Urea also increases the solubility of dyes when mixing dye powders and when making dye paint.  Only a very small amount is needed.  Some dyers recommend more, especially when painting with dyes; but I use only 1/4 - 1/2 tsp to 1/2 cup dye water.
