Dyeing Curtins Darker Color

curtainsI just happened upon your site and have never tried my hand at dye. I have some custom-made rayon/acetate valance/swag curtains that are in a very outdated rose color. I would like them to be darker color like a brown/rust to match more modern decor. Is this possible with good results? How about specifics like where to do the dying (have brand new washing machine that I don’t want to ruin!). Thanks for your help, Diane

Dear Diane,
I wouldn’t try to dye these. You will be adding color to the rose and will likely come out with a muddy blend. Plus, acetate doesn’t take the dye at all, so depending on the fiber content, you may have a very diluted result. Time to go shopping.
