The difficulty (or not) with dying is almost always related to fiber content. There were no labels on our curtains so I was forced to guess what they might be. They felt like cotton but didn't take dye like cotton. Our service manual seemed to indicate polyester when I found that info later. I-Dye Poly didn't work either. Regardless of fiber content, it's possible the fabric had been coated with some sort of treatment, like a stain inhibitor. If that's the case, fiber content may not matter because the treatment will keep the dye from taking.
