Dye-Lishus® cotton is undyed, PFD Plus cotton that has been pre-treated to accept dyes without the use of extra chemicals. It is pre-scoured, pre-mordanted, and pre-patterned.
The cotton is treated in the fiber form before being spun or woven. It is essentially scoured and mordanted in preparation for dyeing before it goes to the mill.
Woven side by side with untreated cotton, the Dye-Lishus® cotton yarn will accept the dye and the untreated cotton may stay white or may take on a pale tint, depending on the dye and the concentration.
