Coloring An Off White Sweater With Yellow Spots

Thanks for the report. I will be interested in the update after it’s completely dry. How much darker a color would you recommend choosing for an off-white sweater with yellowish spots, which is what I have also. Are there certain colors or shades that would be easier for a novice to use successfully. Thanks! Joan

Joan,
Final report: no shrinkage. Sort of a heathered look. It’s been very hot here so I haven’t had a chance to wear it!
I have a suspicion that the darkness of the color relates to the hotness of the water, and really hot water (simmering) can only be gotten on the stove. I don’t know what color you should choose. Just try something! If you like the brown idea, you could try chestnut or brown in acid dyes. Remember, it’s all an experiment.
best,
Jennifer
