Fastnesa of Dye la Not
Question of Color

It Is a common fallacy that green.
lavender, or some other color is less
fast than blue or pink. Fastness de
pends on the chemical composition of
the dye used, not on the color.
Dyestuffs are grouped Into various

and the dyes In some classes are more
fast than those In others. Thus a
green, blue, or any other fabric may
have received Its color from any one of
a number of different dyestuffs vary
Ing widely In permanency. Without
knowing just what kind of a dye was
used—and It Is pructlcally Impossible
for the consumer to tell this—the fast
ness of color In two fabrics cannot be
predicted. A dye that Is one of the
poorest of Its class may have been
used on one of the fabrics, while the
other may have been dyed with one
of the best. Green, lavender, or any
one color Is Just as fust as another if
similar dyes are used.
