Dyeing Burgundy Curtains Dark Brown


Hi, I was wondering if it would turn out if I tried to dye burgundy 100% cotton tab curtains dark brown.

Dear Mona,
well, I don’t know, but you could try it. Keep in mind that you will be adding color, so you’re likely to come out with a dark reddish brown. Dark brown is a hard color to get, you may need to use extra dye or put it through two dye processes. Try one of the permanent dyes available at Michael’s or Jo-Ann (rather than Rit, which is not dark or saturated), or the reactive dyes available at www.dharmatrading.com. Read my article on Fabric Dyeing 101 before you start!

have fun,
