Sean, a good dye job should hold up to heat and moisture. I dyed some of my hand spun yarn and knitted into socks for my DH to use in his Civil War reenactments. They have seen all kinds of abuse, especially heat & moisture.

Then again, I may just be jaded from buying too many hand painted rovings where the dye was not set properly
