Dyeing A Linen Cloth

Hi, I have a linen item of clothing that I want to die. It is currently a print of black and white, sort of animal looking. I love the clothing but it is dated. I was thinking of dying it so I can wear it again. I am thinking black would be the easiest color to change it to; I would prefer brown if possible. Please let me know if I can dye linen and what the best type of dye to use. Thanks so much for your help.

Hi Kellie,
you can’t get this to a solid color. If you want to experiment with over dyeing, you can do it yourself in the washer or consult with dye houses www.fabricdyeing.com. Both of these establishments will dye individual garments. Please read my article on Fabric Dyeing 101 before you take any steps! If you choose to try it yourself, I suggest the reactive dyes from www.dharmatrading.com.
best,
Jennifer
