Coloring A Pair Of Cords

I have recently dyed a pair of cotton cords which were a very pale pink. I used a dark purple washing machine dye and they have ended up a very garish bright purple color – not the look I was after at all. is there anything I can do to make them dark purple? or what other options do have? even just making them black? thanks for your help! Helen

Helen,
look for a place in UK to get fiber reactive dye. Read full instructions for same at www.dharmatrading.com and www.prochemical.com. I would just send you to Dharma Trading Co, but I don’t think they ship to UK. Get dark purple and other necessary chemicals and start again. You won’t be able to get a suitable black, it’s too difficult.
Write back if you have questions!
