Silk Charmeuse in Peach Salmon Color

I cannot find silk charmeuse yardage in the right soft peach/salmon color. If I purchase a champagne color charmeuse can I dye it? If so, what kind of dye should I use? And where might it be available? Thanks for your help :) Maureen

Dear Maureen,
First, search here at fabrics.net to see if you can find the color you want. If you still can’t find it, you can get ready-to-dye charmeuse at www.dharmatrading.com. They carry the dye too, but if you are going to do it yourself, you will need to experiment, because the reactive dyes take to silk slightly differently from the colors illustrated.
Check out Sherry’s colors at www.fabricdyeing.com to see if she has anything you like in her stock colors. The easiest thing might be to have her dye the fabric. In fact, I would talk with her before you buy any fabric, because you are going to have some shrinkage, etc.
have fun and good luck!
