@SalmonRiver- I sell locally, as well as online. I don’t have a textile dyeing machine, but I can tell you some of what I use for my textile fabric dyeing.
My gas cooking stove is my heat source. I recommend stainless steel or enamel pans for holding the dyes. Some pan materials can cause colors to change. You will definitely want a good thermometer. I use one for dyes and for wax when I am batiking.
I use plastic containers for storing dyes when I have leftovers. It’s also good to have a variety of containers in different sizes for dipping or rinsing fabric.
Don’t forget protective gear! I always have a supply of gloves and a couple aprons. I also use masks like you can get at a medical supply store to cut down on some of the fumes.
