Can You Dye A Shag Rug

Is this possible? I have a 60′ round 1″ shag rug that is a light oatmeal color and I would like it to be amethyst or eggplant. is it possible to dye this rug like in a small kiddie pool or something? thank you Shelley

Hi Shelley,
this can be done, but you can’t do it yourself. Look at www.carpetdyeing.com for more info. Olefin is a synthetic fiber which will not take fabric dye.
best,
Jennifer
