Dyeing Muslin

I recently purchased a house that provided long tab curtains made out of , I believe muslin. I don’t know my fabrics, but they feel 100% cotton – just rough feeling. They are lined with a softer , I think cotton.
I would like to dye them. They are a creamy color – I would like to go darker towards a brown/gold or even a sage green
Would tea staining accomplish this or should I use a dye? If so , what kind….any instructions?

Hi Cindy,
you might be able to dye your curtains. First, in order to get them all the same color, you must be able to fit them all loosely in your washer. If you can, then get a copy of the catalog from www.dharmatrading.com and study it carefully.
If you can’t fit them all in the washer, contact Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com. She specializes in this kind of thing. Keep in mind the thread will not dye, so unless you don’t mind a sharply contrasting thread, you’ll need to stay in the range of the current color.
best,
Jennifer
