Color On Suede Jacket Bleed

I can’t believe I found this web sight. What a blessing!
I have a new cranberry suede jacket that I wore for the first time last night. When I got home I discovered that the back of the collar had bled onto the back of the silk/poly (?) cream colored shell I had worn underneath. After several hand washing of the neck area, the color seems to be coming off the shell. But I don’t want to go through this every time I wear the jacket. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Dear Suzanne,
take the jacket back. The retailer should know that it is “crocking,” or rubbing color off, like this. Even if it came from a discount store, I would take it back and file a vigorous complaint.
best,
Jennifer
