    Yes, I do steam the poles, but to set the pleats not the dye. Look at the entries “How an ENTWINEMENTS scarf is made”. Especially this entry,http://entwinements.com/blog-mt3/2006/10/how_an_entwinements_scarf_is_made5.html#more.
    You can also find more info on using acid dyes in my book, SHIBORI:creating color and texture on silk.
