Is there any reason why I can't dye wool yarn with both of these dyes at the same time doing speckles? I have some colors of dye in the basic variety and some in the acid dyes. Thanks in advance, I can't seem to find anything online about this.

Hi Christina,

I think I would have said they interact too much before.  The Basic dyes are positively charged and the Acid dyes are negatively charged.  So I would worry one might keep the other from Dyeing because they would be attracted to each other and not the yarn.  I did some tests recently, but on silk not wool, and it didn't seem to be a problem.  So, I think you might be ok.  This is definitely an experiment and report back situation.  Sorry, I don't have a more clear answer.
