Dyeing Without Fading

From an non-expert, the scarf feels like chiffon type cloth and pants are some kind of cotton blend. What should I do to make it possible to enjoy this lovely suit without it fading onto everything.

Dear Kate,
There is only one hope, and I don’t know if it will work. Treat the fabric with Retayne, available at www.dharmatrading.com. The directions specify using Retayne with hot water – you could try warm and then launder on cold. Apparel from India is a big mix of synthetic and natural fibers now, so I don’t know if you risk extensive shrinkage or not. You may as well try it. Your only other option is to hang up the suit and look at it.
Follow the directions on the bottle of Retayne.
good luck,
Jennifer
