There are several official conservation centres in Spain where
qualified personnel carry out work on textile conservation. Due to
the lack of formal education on the conservation of textiles in
Spain people working on this subject have trained either abroad or
in Spain, under close supervision of those with academic degrees.
Therefore I trust you will find that there are other textile
conservators in Spain that will be able to help you in your query if
you contact them directly.

The Instituto del Patrimonio Historico Espanol (IPHE) is the Spanish
Institute for the Conservation of Historic Heritage, which has a
Department for the Conservation of Textiles that has been running
for more than 20 years. Here they dye with Lanaset dyes frequently.
Their web page is:

You may also find some help from textile conservators working at the
Instituto Andaluz del Patrimonio Historico (IAPH) (Andalusian
Institute for the Conservation of Historic Heritage, Patrimonio
Nacional (National Heritage), Museo del Traje (Madrid) and the
Colegio de Arte Mayor de la Seda (Valencia) among others, which
contact details you will easily find through the internet or
directories. Hope this helps,
