Really I want escape from steaming wool . I have a large amount piece wool fabric, and large size, this will take much time until end,
What if I'm make fabric hanging on a ropes , inside a closed room, and make room temperature 60c or 70C or 158f ,
and left for 10 hours .

Is this could be an Instead of the process of steaming

What is the best solution for fixative acid dyes , far from the steaming

Hello,

To my knowledge steaming printed Acid Dyes is the only way to ensure wash-fastness. Temperature alone will not suffice, the steam is necessary and it is also necessary to bring the temperature with steam to at least 200f/94c.
