What's the inside made of? If it's cotton, and synthetic on the outside you'd need to use both a dye for natural fabric and one for synthetics at the same time, which is possible (according to the instructions in the dye packet).

I just wanted to add as well that there have been problems with dye bleeding onto other things during the wash from the wraps. I've washed them a few more times which hopefully will have solved the problem, but unfortunately the little polyester tag I put in with the wash to check if it was still bleeding dye disappeared :doh: so I can't check yet.
