Zip ties? What do zip ties have to do with dying, Dharma?
Well, how does never using another rubber band again grab you? Jacquard's new Releasable Zip Ties are designed to be reused, making them practical for tie-dye, shibori, submersion, or any other technique that involves holding bunched fabric together. Tightly. These heavy duty cable ties are made to be tough and flexible so they can be used again and again without breaking.
And of course, we all know zip ties are as handy as duct tape and WD40. Well REUSABLE Zip Ties are EVEN HANDIER!
Reusable ties last longer and are more environmentally responsible - you won't be cutting and tossing all those plastic ties or rubber bands! They are also easier on your hands than putting hundreds of rubber bands on your tie-dyes if you're doing large amounts. They are made with a durable plastic that is non-corrosive, has 50 pounds of tensile strength and has been smooth-molded with no sharp edges. String 'em together if you need a longer length. Easy to ratchet down tight. We could go on and on...
Easy to use, the release button is part of the head ratchet and all you have to do is press the handle down and that will release the ratchet from the tie. They hold up really well, even up to boiling, so they should be fine for even hot water dye baths. They do tend to take the new shape that they are in when they are heated, so while they look weird afterward, it does not affect their ability to hold the fabric tightly. They are good for multiple rounds, even after hot dye baths..
