Acrylic/ Wool Yarn Sweater – Dyeing

I have two sweaters made of acrylic/wool yarn which I would like to have dyed. They are currently a variegated green/beige color and I would like to have them dyed a dark color (say, charcoal or black). Is this possible? Who would be able to do this type of work?
Thanks very much for your help.

Sabina,
you can inquire at www.dyeproservices.com in Alberta. They will advise you as to the possibility of dyeing. FYI, if the fiber content is more than 50% acrylic, they can’t be satisfactorily dyed. Anything less than 50% will take the dye at a reduced saturation, so you probably won’t be able to get a dark black.
best,
Jennifer
