I just bought a second hand Merino wool scarf, great quality, but awful design so I want to colour it black or dark blue. Any suggestions about which dye to use and how or whether I should not do this?
Problem is that you must use hot water to dye fabrics, and the hot water is likely to shrink the wool a lot. Wool changes texture (turns into felt) from hot water and may not be as soft. The pattern may not dye evenly so you may not end up with a solid color scarf. Lots of negatives to consider.
