Dyeing Baby Blue Velvet Curtains

Would it possible to successfully die baby blue velvet curtains? If so how would I go about it? I’d like to go to a medium beige-mauve hue. The curtains are in a home I am purchasing, they are practically new and custom made for a massive window.

Dear Cris,
For this I am going to send you to Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com. She is an expert in this sort of thing. The basic answer is, it depends on the fiber content of the velvet. Upholstery and drapery velvet is often cotton, so you have a chance.
Good luck and congrats on the new house!
