I don't think so, you can dye light to dark, but I have never heard of dying dark to light, the only way that it could be done is if you remove the current color first and even so if there are any invisible stains on the item, like there could be on black fabric, they would show up on the re-dyed item.

How do I change the color of a fabric by dyeing it?

By Paul from Stonewall, LA


Dyeing Fabric

What color is the current fabric and what color are you trying to obtain? (10/04/2010)

You will only be successful if the clothing is cotton or poly cotton. You use Rit dye, and follow the directions on the package. But, it isn't a foolproof procedure! We need more details, as Deeli has said. (10/12/2010)
