I've used dylon a lot in the past and even now as I often like the 'surprise' and one colour at a time. Just bought some procion dyes from ebay ready to try. I've used some cheap dyes from a tie dye kit that cost £1 from Hawkins bazaar website. Not brilliant but it was only £1 for the kit!

I've used Procion dyes (bought from eBay too) on cotton and OBV. They're not too difficult to use but can need a bit of rinsing out.
