Dyeing Knit Jacket

Jennifer – I purchased a knit jacket and dress on line. The dress arrived one month before the jacket – the dye lots are different :( The color on the dress is a light oatmeal/white, the color on the jacket is very light yellow. The fabric content is 55% Ramie and 45% cotton. The label reads Dry Clean. I was hoping to remove the color and then dye the pieces together. Looking forward to your thoughts.

Dear Diane,
If you bought the pieces new from an on-line retailer, I would suggest that you send them back.
If you can’t return them then you will be undertaking an experiment. Keep in mind:
–color remover uses HOT water and agitation
–If the pieces are structured or tailored, you risk shrinkage and twisting.

good luck!
